Malou da Cunha Bang

Malou da Cunha Bang is an upcoming Studio Workspace Resident at WSW. She recently graduated as a visual artist from The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm.

Her primary approaches are printmaking and video. In her graphic work she has specialized in gravure printing as photopolymer, collagraphy and copper etching. During her final year at The Royal Institute of Art she developed her own technique. A mix between digital and analogue techniques where she draws and transfer images digitally to copper plates, which then is process with the traditional intaglio techniques of etching and printing.

Her works revolves around seemingly ordinary rooms. The rooms get charged with a feeling of sci-fi to explore the facts of what the rooms are supposed to be, and how they in fact disguise hierarchies, status and submission.

She is interested in printmaking as a transforming language that can visualize the authority and obedience build into regulatory spaces. Spaces that in there rigid form becomes almost dysfunctional.
