“In my practice, I explore what might be perceived as beautiful, I do however not seek to romanticize or glorify my environments. I want to bring the work past our preconceived notions about what we expect to be confronted with in a certain encounter. The image archive Ecolonia, is my language, my way of describing a reality we co-create with our surroundings. I’m interested in conveying the hidden, that something ‘more’ which resides in nature and goes beyond what meets the eye. Within this system, the everyday is revalued.”
The videos by Carolina Jonsson has been shown at Impakt Festival in Holland, Kunstnerernes Hus in Norway, Speechless Film Festival i Minnesota and Queensland Center for Photography in Australia among others.
