Samos YoungArtists Festival



Born in Lohja, Finland; lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

Hans Rosenström’s practice centres around installations that deal with the viewers psychological and physical relationship within a specific moment and place. In creating these situations/experience he uses a wide variety of media and material; from the ephemeral yet tactile qualities of sound to architectural interventions. The presence of the viewer is integral in the work which remains incomplete until it has been activated.


Rosenström has participated in group exhibitions both in Finland and abroad including: Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More,1st Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Riga (2018);The Garden – End of Times, Beginning of Time, Aros Triennial, Århus, Denmark (2017); The Vanishing Point of History,L’Été Photographique de Lectoure, France (2015), and solo exhibitions at a u g u s t, Helsinki Contemporary (2017) and Off Seasons, in collaboration with Stormglas at EMMA, Espoo Museum of Modern Art (2017). 


Forthcoming projects include a collaboration with Zuecca Project Space in Venice, Italy and a solo exhibition at Kuntsi Museum in Vaasa, Finland (2019).


In 2011, Rosenström was awarded the Ducat Prize and in 2015 he was nominated for the Ars Fennica Prize.
