Residents 2015

Kristofer Flensmarck b. 1976, debuted as a poet 2005 and his first novel Blondieland was published in 2013. During the SIRP-residency he will work on a novel that will be published by Natur & Kultur during 2016. Flensmarck is currently living in Malmö, Sweden.

“My artistic process can be described as a conceptual research where I relate to
existing textual materials. Throughout my reworking process the texts find new forms through quotes, translation, interpretation, manipulation and addition. For example: Almanacka (Almanac) is composed of quotes from my grandmother’s diaries, F P S is largely based on translations of diaries belonging to the Columbine-murderers, and in Slutförvar (Repository) the found diaries from a crofter is mixed together with interpretations of hard rock lyrics.”
