Interview: Carmen Lindahl
Luca Curci talks with Carmen Lindahl during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS ART FAIR 2021, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Born in Spain in 1956, raised in Paris Carmen later moved to Sweden, then Luxemburg. There she had her first artistic schooling at l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts, before moving to Paris again. She was accepted at “Salon des Independents” in 1991. Settling in Sweden in 1994 she continued with oil painting but learnt also to work with prints, Chinese ink, sculpture and watercolour. Exhibitions included galleries in Sweden, Spain and Greece. Having been admitted to the Swedish Artists’ Association in 2001, she received the Members’ own award in 2006. She represented the Nordic Watercolour Society at an exhibition in Italy and was chosen to participate at the City of Stockholm Art Gallery (“Liljevalchs”) spring exhibition in 2009. Her works have been acquired by several Swedish towns, private collectors and art associations. Since 2016 Carmen lives in Menton. Like many artists arriving in south France, she was overwhelmed by the light and the luxuriant vegetation. Lately, she has exhibited in France, Monaco, Sweden, and, nowadays, online. This year, her works are scheduled to be shown in London and Paris. The objects are a series of oil paintings of Mediterranean flora.

LUCA CURCI – What is art for you?
CARMEN LINDAHL
– Art for me is something I wanted to work with ever since I was a child. It is a lifelong learning process that makes you a happy person. Art is wonderful.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
CL
– Since I started to exhibit I have successively added on techniques, out of curiosity or of necessity.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
CL
– Being an artist is not easy. There is a lot of talent out there and not that many customers. The possibilities to exhibit are few and costly.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
CL
– Right now I get my inspiration from nature, maybe because where I live in the South of France nature is extraordinarily present.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
CL
– When working, I don’t think of art as expressing myself but it is unavoidable I guess. The outcome will be a reflection of me as a person.
