poem by Ingrid Furre for At Sea

Florence Wild (1987) lives in Stockholm. Using humble or found materials she works mainly with sculpture, textiles and words. Drawing upon her immediate surroundings, everyday activities of collecting, browsing and arranging become poetic methods through which her works reflect on time, distance, human endeavour and built environments. 

She holds an MFA in Fine Art from Konstfack, Sweden (2017), and a BFA from Elam School of Fine Art in Aotearoa New Zealand (2009).
