Magdalena Blom, (b. 1987) is a visual artist and curator based in Järna, Stockholm. Her practice explores cross-ecological and feminist concepts, emphasising on gender-related issues and power structures.
Magdalena Blom´s work is especially focused on motherhood as an idea which departures from her own personal experiences, often layered with humour.
She uses various media, such as drawing, paint, video, also wood, textiles, sculpture, and graphic design. In the studio she intuitevely assembles the art works out of found material, derived straight from nature, her own garden, body or kitchen. Some of the imagery or constructed objects becomes a part of a larger narrative in Blom's video work.
