About Johanna Mårtensson and Ida Lundén : Johanna works with scenography for theatre, dance, film, photography and with her own projects and collaborations. She often explores rooms and objects together with the audience and her interest lies in exploring the role of sensory perception and psychic interaction that participants has with the work. Johanna trained Fine Art at Nyckelviksolan and Gerlesborgskolan in Stockholm before she studied Design for Performance at Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London. When she graduated 1999 she was nominated for the prestigious Linbury Prize For Stage Design. She works for a wide range of theaters in Sweden including Riksteatern. Orgel - 2015 years contribution is created together with Ida Lundén, composer and musician, active mainly in chamber music and electronic music. She was one of the founders of Syntjuntan and was 2011-2013 Composer in Residence at the Swedish Radio P2. Over the last few years she has received attention for her imaginative works for sometimes unusual combinations of instruments like viola and potatoes or bass singers and double basses. She has done installations and solo works for eg the Swedish Academy of Music, Music in Gävleborg and Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation.
I am interested in the way objects and architecture form a scenography to our lives, as inherited idéas and constructed realities that we persist building on to. In my projects my aim is to explore new ways of seeing, involve the participants and use interactive objects and materials from our everyday life.
