Charlotta Öberg (1987)

Charlotta is currently based in Vienna and a student at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

Born in Söderhamn, also lived in Göteborg and Stockholm, Sweden.

In her practice she is questioning power structures and restrictions in the society such as norms of behavior, norms of being heterosexual and norms of being successful and healthy. Exploring what feelings this creates and different ways of handle this hinders and how to fight society restrictions by doing. She is interested in what in these structures affects our personal behaviors? What creates them? What comes out of them? Affecting whom? She believes this work requires sharing experiences with others. Therefore she is mostly working interactive or/and in collaboration with other artists and activists

Charlotta has a background in working with human rights in different NGO´s. Her works are mostly performance-based and/or including interactive elements. She also uses her crafting skills from being a trained pattern maker and milliner. 

Charlotta wants to create plattforms for emotional meetings as with her piece Spoon - Me (2017). This piece was created out of a strong desire for a shared softness and tenderness, that she want to create and se more of within our society. Later she exhibited Soft Anus Sinkhole (2018) which took form as a 2*2*2 meter textile sculpture which you could climb up at and sink into a soft hole. Right now she is working on a project called The Making of Soft Anuses and is also engaged in an ongoing collaboration with artist Charlotte Gash making the Sorry I Love You, Bar, and other collaborations with artist Sophie Stadler and with artist Eva Sommer.
