Runo Lagomarsino


Runo Lagomarsino (b. 1977, Sweden) lives and works in Malmö and São Paulo. He participated in the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program in 2007-2008 and received his MFA at the Malmö Art Academy in 2003. The artist tries to construct frictions between language, representation, and dominant narratives by investigating fractures and blind paths from where to tell other stories, unlearn, read the past, and name the future. Lagomarsino has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the world, including West is everywhere you look, Francesca Minini, Milano (2016); Carla Zaccagnini & Runo Lagomarsino, Malmö Konsthall (2015); Against My Ruins, Nils Stærk, Copenhagen (2014); We have everything, but that’s all we have, Mendes Wood DM, São Paulo (2013), and For Each Light a Shadow, Ignacio Liprandi, Buenos Aires (2013); the World’s Futures, the 56th Venice Biennale (2015); Really useful knowledge, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2014); Under the Same Sun, Guggenheim Museum, New York (2014); The 30th São Paulo Biennial – The Imminence of Poetics (2013); Untitled – 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011) and The Moderna Exhibition, Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2010).
