CV

LISELOTTE WAJSTEDT

Based in Stockholm, Liselotte is a Sámi multimedia artist from Kiruna whose work spans film and video, collage, painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, and installation. Her experimental moving image body of work comprises over two dozen shorts and feature-length films. Spanning hybrid documentary, experimental media, music video, dance, and fiction films, Wajstedt mobilizes many different styles and techniques in the service of her politics and aesthetics, including animation, claymation, stop-motion, and superimposition. Many of Wajstedt’s films engage explicitly or implicitly with multiple and hybrid subject positions, as evident in A Sami in the City (2007), Sami Daughter Joik (2008), A Soul in a City (2011), Kiruna Space Road (2013), The Lost One (2014), Kiruna the drift block, Bromsgatan, Kvarteret Ortdrivaren och The Girl Kiruna (2020), and  Silence in Sapmi ( 2021).

Behind her she has an education in painting and arts from different schools in Sweden: Project programme in free Art at Royal Tnstitute of art as well as animation and experimental filmmaking with special emphasis on documentary storytelling and scriptwriting; Bachelor of Arts in Expression in Convergent Media, 2010 at Gotland University.
