Eugène Sundelius von Rosen

Eugène Sundelius von Rosen (Sweden, 1991) is about to graduate from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, but his production – of drawings, comic books, animations, performance-based video and poetry – is already sizeable. He conjures up a drawn world, with sexless and ageless characters endlessly saying and doing non-descript things, as a counter-image to the ‘undrawn world’ that he also ceaselessly photographs. Counter-intuitively, the narcissist bent of this ‘diary life’ (the neologism is his) comes across as a self-reflexive, productively poetic being-in-the-world.
