Karl Holmqvist

Holmqvist's hypnotic readings and photocopied works on paper reveal his interest in repetition and patterns.

Karl Holmqvist is an artist and poet whose output has included performance, recorded sound, printed matter, video, collage and installation. His work is characterised by its social and political activism, albeit manifested in a highly personal and eccentric form. Filtered through a collage of cultural references, it takes in a lineage of figures associated with or appropriated by alternative culture, from Jesus and William Blake to William Burroughs and Patti Smith.
