Fia Backström & Andreas Eriksson for Sweden in the Nordic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2011

The partnership between the three nations sharing the Nordic Pavilion in Venice – Sweden, Finland and Norway – will try a new concept for the next three biennials. The previous requirement that all three countries should be represented by artists will be set aside to enable solo exhibitions. Sweden, which is responsible for the Nordic Pavilion in 2011, will thus be presenting two separate projects.

The artists Fia Backström and Andreas Eriksson are currently producing new works for the Biennale. Once these projects have reached a more mature stage, they will be presented in a new press release.
