Charlotte Nordgren Sewell is a British-Swedish artist living and working in Barcelona. She graduated from Goldsmiths College with an MA in Art and Politics. She has participated in study programs on Latin American Politics at El Colegio de Mexico and Studio Arts at Metáfora Studio Arts in Barcelona. Her current investigation is dedicated to exploring the mythologies and cultural histories surrounding the image of the teddy/bear. Using textiles, writing, video and soft sculpture, her practice stitches together archival research, colonial histories, fairytales and personal narratives. She is also a co-founding member of the art and politics collective Herederas de Lilith, whose work includes the organisation of socially engaged exhibitions, events and art educational projects.
After completing her studies in 2019, she was selected as a resident artist on the JAI program at Tabakalera (San Sebastian) in 2020, and in 2021 she has been artist in residence at Tangent Projects (Barcelona) and Can Serrat (El Bruc).
Charlotte has made her residency in Can Serrat during the months of June, July, August 2021
