David Molander

David Molander works with digital photo- and film collages and animation. He collects a documentary material of urban environments, consisting of hundreds of photos and film clips that he dissects and reconstructs into large still- or moving images, somewhere between documentation and fiction. Molander cuts open interiors, samples streetlights, stitches together pavements and gathers parts of the city that although closely linked, seldom meet. His work puts emphasis on new relationships between architecture, social environment, communication, living memory and the humans within it.

David Molander (b. 1983) graduated from the School of Photography at Gothenburg University in 2010. In addition, he has studied film and photography at Harvard University. Molander was awarded the Beckers Artist Grant 2014 and had an acclaimed solo show at Färgfabriken early 2014. In 2013, Molander’s work was featured in a solo exhibition at Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York. Furthermore, he was awarded the Victor Fellowship by the Hasselblad Foundation in 2011, which supported a six month residency at Location One, New York. In addition, his work has been shown at Museum of Architecture and Design, Stockholm City Museum, Gothenburg City Museum, Hasselblad Foundation and Färgfabriken.
