Joakim Eneroth is a multi-disciplinary international established artist. His varied and experimental techniques propose artworks that are both contemplative and poetic.
Eneroth grew up in an environment of a political protest, within a family of anarchists and socialists, a far cry from consumer society and the influence of publicity.
An adept of meditation, Joakim Eneroth conceives the photographic medium as a transcription of mental reaction.
His aim is often to reveal more and more of the subconscious layers of our experience, the dance of notions and perceptions in the fluctuating mind. The questions usually revolve around how to distinguish the mental projections from reality itself. Awareness and mind are the themes that unite Eneroth’s protean work. With each new series, the artist explores another aspect of consciousness and the boundaries where our inner and outer worlds meet.
Joakim Eneroth’s artworks have been exhibited in many countries of the world and are part of major collections such as: Tate Modern (London), Brooklyn Museum of Art (New York), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Houston Museum of fine art, Dallas Museum of art, MEP (Paris), Frank Suss Collection (London), Deichtorhallen – House of photography (Hamburg), Musée des Beaux Arts (Pau), Art Foundation Mallorca, Bowery Collection (Copenhagen), Nordiska Museet (Stockholm), Montana Collection (Copenhagen).
His work has also been published as art books with prestigious publishers like Steidl and Power House Books. Eneroth is the recipient of numerous grants and awards.
