About Kajsa G Eriksson

Summary

Kajsa G. Eriksson is an Artist and Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Visual Arts at the Art Teachers Program, HDK, Gothenburg University, Sweden. Eriksson holds a PhD in Design and runs the independent artistic research studio Vague Research Studios. She teaches visual and studio art, contemporary art theory and history, and the relation between scientific and artistic research methods.
Artist and Ph.D. Kajsa G. Eriksson specializes in visual art, studio art and art education. Mainly engaging with posthuman theories and methodologies, she also connects to phenomenology, post-structural, feminist and queer theories as well as practice-based research related to art practice. Her teaching expertise is in the area of student learning and engagement, knowledge-in-action and sustainability as an integrated part of teaching and research.
Eriksson's dissertation “Concrete Fashion: Dress, Art, And Engagement in Public Space” (2010) is an example of artistic research that explores the border between design and contemporary art, in order to place situated bodily practices within larger field of exploration and ideology, and to discover new formats. Eriksson conducts and develops experimental art practices, artistic research, and arts education programs. Collaboration, interdisciplinary studies, and the transformative force of art in everyday life is the platform that her teaching, artistic practice, and research has evolved from.


Research projects
REGN (RAIN) is a climate change art project which imagines life as if rain were never-ending. The project was initiated in 2011 by Kajsa G. Eriksson and artist, researcher and teacher Fredric Gunve. The methods of REGN (RAIN) are experimental and emerge from Kajsa G. Eriksson’s art-based dissertation. The project is relational in nature and integrates performance, performativity, writing, and object-making with the entanglement of physical and imaginative worlds. The method draws together the real and the speculative in order to make and mark the instability of both. Blurring the borders between fiction and reality also fosters the emergence of unexpected experiences and connectivity. Instability, both imaginative and felt, and the emergence of experiences, affects, and empathies are key to the transformative power of the method.
Vague Research Studio is an artistic research studio specializing in material as technology/culture/education which was initiated together with PhD Lena TH Berglin, Associate Prof. in Design and Material Practices at the Swedish School of Textiles. VRS practice is socially engaged and emerges out of everyday life where collective methods, feministic and trans-disciplinary approaches are used in the fields of visual art, design, pedagogy and material technologies. VRS vaguing methodology is described as “performing explorations”, (exploring situations in without dividing the knower from the known), and “vague technology” (enabling a fluid relation between people and technology) (Eriksson, 2010) (Berglin, 2008).
 

Teaching
Eriksson teaches in studio art and design focusing on artistic processes, participatory art and art & design in public space. She also teaches art theory and art history with specialization in contemporary and feminist art, and artistic practices. In the art teachers program her main teaching and supervision is in art-based research, specializing in the relations and connections between theory, methodologies and artistic methods. Currently Eriksson´s teaching trains the Art and Art Education students to place their work in relational processes to everyday life, and to a social world both within and outside campus.
