Lina Selander (1973, Stockholm) studied photography at the Academy of Photography and Film in Gothenburg and Fine art at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
She is a guest professor at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
Selanders work often focus on junctures in history where a system or physical place collapses and something new begins to emerge; the narrative of mechanical cinema giving way to that of digital video, or a political or economic system plummeting into a new one. Her works revolve around images as memories, imprints and representations.

Representing Sweden, Arsenale, The 56th Venice Biennale, 2015; Open system - Silphium and other works, Iniva, Institute of International Visual Arts, London.
