In my work with the exhibition Our Scenery, I have delved into our relationship to the concept and meaning of landscape. In recent years, in my artistry, I have worked with how the border between the personal dimension, nature and scenography can tell about our ideas about what we expect from a landscape but also how it is experienced or interpreted in our everyday life and storytelling tradition.
The positioning towards nature has been characterized by industrialism, religion and recent years the individualism that shaped our perception of changing values and the actual function of the landscape in our lives.

In the photo series Forecast Diaries, exhibited at SSE during 26 October - 2 January, we see the artist Peter Stridsberg standing in a rocky landscape with his back to the viewer, contemplating what´s in front of him.
The seven photographs in the series, taken during one week in August 2021) are accompanied by weather forecasts for each day – a way of predicting the future – from SMHI (the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute). The forecasts are for the specific site where the photos are taken: the island Tjörn on the Swedish west coast. Forecasts are read on the Swedish radio every day and while they are important information for many people, others hear them almost as poetry.

Duo exhibition, Umeå Konsthall,
Maria Friberg and Peter Stridsberg are two artists from different generations. They work with photographic scenes that depict the transition between man and nature. In the exhibition Blicka, we get to experience their work in dialogue with each other for the first time. Their art meets in the borderland between different environments and places. The individual's belonging is at the center of questions about the climate and the individual's existence. The artists see the photograph as a picture of ongoing events where reality is constantly changing.

Solo exhibition, Kumla Konsthall,
As a visual artist, I work to approach and examine our relationship to meet changes in nature and uncontrolled forces. How do we stand in front of and towards the transformation of the place, nature and our immediate environment. Can we understand and understand the regrowth of nature in a lost landscape where we control the image and reading of the place and the environment?
The exhibition revolves around how we approach nature in change and landscapes that are constantly created before our eyes.

“Through my work, I seek to understand my roots and belonging by exploring places connected to my family history and the romantic memory I have of the locations I use in my imagery. I seek to answer that which lies behind a sentimental gaze and its effect on the storytelling."

MFA Degree show
Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sweden
In stories, the word meanwhile [meanwhile] takes us to an event that takes place in parallel but in a different place than the one where the main story takes place. We are moved to this second place and know that what is going to happen there will affect how the story develops. Meanwhile is a signal to increase our attention. What is now being told will matter. The Academy's master's exhibition is the final exhibition in two years of intensive discussions, research and work.
