Erik Malmsten, born 1982 in Falun Sweden, works and lives in Stockholm. His works mainly focuses on inner and outer space, inner and outer bodies and gender, with a red tread on abject thinking, with the abject being something psychological. A feeling that can be unpleasant, disgusting or frightening. A feeling he points out, blows up, and tries to enclose his viewer with. He explores this subjects mostly with audio, video, and room installations.
