Ingeborg Annie Lindahl (b. 1981 in Harstad) mainly working site-specific in several mediums, she has been most noted for her large scale chalk-drawings and installations. Lindahl’s artistic method combines the outcome from field trips and personal experience of the place. When Lindahl started working with chalk, she was drawn by impermanence and thoughts for expulsion. She has used chalk in several different shapes; as marble, plaster and pigment, playing with the idea of mankind as a early stage of becoming mineral.

Lindahls work is in many ways performance based, where she is portraying the landscape in a romantic and dramatic manner. Her material substantiates a manifestation of change, both in how knowledge is made and how nature is in a constant state of transformation. Lindahl is interested in the landscape of echoes in the sphere of human thought, and explore culture and value in our time in relation to nature.

Devolution Crater, 2013 Nordic Artists Centre Dale, Norway. The background for Devolution Crater is a fascination for how asteroids can both destroy and create life. Most people know that the dinosaurs died out as a result of a natural disaster where a giant meteorite created the mass extinction (Chicxulub crater in Mexico). More unknown is that asteroids and comets is the source of all water and organic material on the planet. Lindahl is inspired by how asteroids can provide a situation picture of Earth’s origin. Asteroids are small celestial bodies and dwarf planets, shattered debris that never grew large enough to become planets. When you see a shooting star is a meteor burning up high in the atmosphere, if anything survives and fall to the ground they are called meteorites. Meteorites from outer space could tell something about Earth, since they often contains material older than the Earth. The stones around us can tell dramatic stories of volcanic eruptions and meteorite impacts. Devolution Crater is a man-made crater, where Lindahl attempt to merge art and nature by using organic material. Our con icting thoughts about nature affects our awareness of global challenges. The artwork is transience with the materials wood, soil and moss, and will eventually rot and disappear. This break with conventional ideas about how art can exceed normal processes of mortality.
