Tactile & Sculpted objects
Yngvild Saeter, born in 1986 in Norway, is a Stockholm-based artist working mostly with tactile and sculpted objects. She graduated in Fine Arts from HDK-Valand, Gothenburg, after studying photography in Oslo as well as cultural and social anthropology and political science. She often works with motorcycle parts, metal rivets, chains, and pieces of fur, which she combines to build strange hybrid forms that are at once recognizable yet defy categorization. Her pieces, deeply connected to the punk and straight-edge movement, evoke shields, skeletons, and bones, and revolves around questions of life and death. Yngvild is represented by gallery Andréhn- Schiptjenko and has exhibited in major galleries and museums in Scandinavia, as well as New York City, Rome, and Vienna. She has also received awards, such as the 2019 Sigvard and Marianne Bernadotte Art Award.
