Jonas Lund (1984, Sweden) creates paintings, sculptures, photography, websites and performances that critically reflect on contemporary networked systems and power structures of control. His artistic practice involves creating systems and setting up parameters that oftentimes require engagement from the viewer. This results in game-like artworks where tasks are executed according to algorithms or rules, but with a strong factor of coincidence. Through his works, Lund investigates the latest issues generated by the increasing digitalisation of contemporary society such as authorship, participation and authority. At the same time, he questions the mechanisms of the art world and challenges the production process, authoritative power and art market practices.
