Teresa WENNBERG

Biography

 

Teresa Wennberg is a painter and multi media artist, born in Sweden.

Beside her painting studies at Atelier Harburger in Paris, France she studied photography with Neal Slavin and worked with John Cage and Nam June Paik.

She was one of the first artists to make video at the Centre Pompidou in Paris (1978) and went on to explore the possibilities with computers. Her multidisciplinary background in law, economics, language, painting and computer graphics has fuelled her interest in cognitive functions such as language, memory and perception, which often constitute a foundation for her work

 

She has received numerous grants and awards and has participated in major exhibitions such as: Biennale de Paris; Ars Electronica, Linz; Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Fondation Gulbenkian Lisbon; Centre G. Pompidou Paris; Liljevalchs Konsthall, Stockholm; Kulturhuset, Stockholm;

InterCommunication Center ICC, Tokyo; the VR-Cube at KTH, Stockholm; Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Santiago de Chile.

 

Since 1997, she has been developing Virtual Reality and computer art at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH in Stockholm and writing about media technology.
