K. Friberg

Shahla K. Friberg (born in Toronto, Canada, 1978) currently works and lives in Skäret, Sweden.
An Iranian/Canadian artist, Shahla Friberg is captivated by the sensorial impacts of light and its properties.

For the past 8 years she has been primarily focused on creating sculptural works using glass, mirror, and solder, which materialize in an organic, meditative process, resulting in diverse outcomes from reflective forms casting complex fragmented reflections of ourselves and our surroundings back at us, to translucent multi-color forms which attempt to encapsulate the spectrum as a whole. Her works are activated by light, and she explores the interplay of disorder and harmony through the manipulation of perspective evident in how the work shifts and changes as the viewer moves around it.

In 2020, she relocated from Los Angeles to the south of Sweden, where she is creating works on a seaside nature reserve, a location sought by Scandinavian artists for its distinctive light qualities.

Her works have been featured in acclaimed exhibitions such as: "The Re-Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome," alongside Isabelle Albuquerque, Mike Kelly, Devin B. Johnson, presented by Jeffrey Deitch Gallery and Nicodim Gallery for LA Frieze week 2020; "The Desire for Transparency," alongside Ai Weiwei, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, curated by Paul Laster and Renée Riccardo for Intersect Chicago/SOFA; "Suggested Followers" at Sotheby’s New York 2022, an immersive installation; "Glowstone Refuge" for the duration of the 2023 program at Gallery Arnstedt, SE. and Remarks on Colour, a solo exhibition at GSA Gallery in Stockholm in 2024.
