Kolbrún Inga Söring

Is currently an MFA student at the Fine art department of Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg. 

Inga’s current enquiry explores possibilities of using the body as an autonomous site of provocation, problematising cis-heteronormative ideals while questioning the deeply rooted ‘myth’ of masculine desire. By borrowing and rethinking HC Andersen’s The Little Mermaid  through a queer and trans lens, Inga sets out to appropriate the narrative with the tool of autotheory. Unpacking their own troubled relationship with said norms and desires within a framework of self-representational body politics, body modification and politics of desire.
