Runo Lagomarsino was born in Argentina, raised in Sweden and is currently based in Malmö. After studying art at the Academy of Fine Art Valand, Gothenburg and the Malmö Art Academy, he went on to attend the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York. Runo Lagomarsino often uses strategies of displacement and transformation to question the writing of history, especially the colonial legacy of South America. His work focuses on how today’s political and social environment has developed through historical processes, and how this creates metaphors and pictures from which we read history and society.
