Bigert & Bergström

Bigert & Bergström

Mats Bigert was born in 1965 in Stockholm. Lars Bergström was born in 1962 in Stockholm.

Bigert & Bergström is a Stockholm-based artist duo. Their creative partnership first began in 1986, and have since become internationally recognized for a wide range of conceptually and technically complex art projects, which range from large-scale sculptures and installations to performance and film. Often with a conceptual edge, the core of their work is placed right in the junction between humanity, nature and technology. With energetic curiosity and often using humor as a tool, the duo is known to analyze scientific and social issues discussed in contemporary society, such as climate change or environmental sustainability.
