Sara Jordenö, born 1974 in Robertsfors, Sweden, is a visual artist, documentary filmmaker, researcher and educator. Her work is informed by discussions around authorship and agency, and resides in the crossing points of institutional critique, site-specific and public art, documentary cinema, and community-based participatory performative practice. For the past eighteen years, Jordenö’s work has been shown internationally at venues such as the Modern Museum, Stockholm, Bildmuseet, Umeå, the Kitchen and MoMA PS1, and has been featured in New York Magazine, Paletten and Modern Painters Magazine. Jordenö was an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre, Iaspis, Stockholm, NIFCA, Belgrade and Helsinki, Baltic Art Center, Visby, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program and the Art & Law Residency in Brooklyn, where she researched and developed contracts in relationship to authorship and participation in collaborative and community-based practices. Jordenö’s work has been commissioned by the Public Art Agency Sweden, Stockholms Läns Landsting, Gothenburg International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Printed Matter, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, MoMA PS1, Muscarnok Kunsthalle, Budapest and the 5th Berlin Biennial.
