“Uniquely voyeur and participant at once, the refreshingly explicit but poised nudity in her work challenges traditional theories of the female role as the inactive and objectified”
Touchingly casual, Lina Scheynius captures scenes from her daily life, exploring and observing friends, lovers, and herself in with an arresting honesty. Uniquely voyeur and participant at once, the surprisingly strong sexual undertone and refreshingly explicit but poised nudity in her work challenges traditional theories of the female role as the inactive and objectified. Documentary and momentary, Scheynius’ world of images is a deeply personal and frank visual diary wholly representational of the current zeitgeist. By way of a narrative fluidity her images transport the onlooker into the artist’s intimate world, sharing some of the most private details of her life.
Her works where shown in several solo and group exhibitions including "Exhibition 01" at Christophe Guye Galerie, Zurich; "Male Nudes – Female Desires" at Galerie Tanya Wagner, Berlin; "What's next? The future of the photography" at Foam Museum, Amsterdam; Stockholm’s “kulturfestival” and "Various Photographs" curated by Tim Barber at the New York photo festival.
In 2012 Scheynius’ weekly column for ZEITMagazin followed in the footsteps of Jürgen Teller.
