Klara Lidén has, in earlier projects, built a house with discarded materials on the banks of a river, set up an alternative free postal system and fly-posted blank white posters over street advertisements. In her 2007 exhibition, Unheimlich Manoeuvre, she moved the entire contents of her apartment into a museum. Her short films capture the improvised performative actions that she undertakes in public urban spaces, such as Paralyzed, 2003, in which she danced provocatively on a commuter train. Her aim is to ‘divert materials or spaces from their prescribed functions, inventing ways of making these things improper again’.
