Louise Waite is an artist and project manager living in Malmö, Sweden. She has been exhibiting as an artist as well as curating events and shows both locally and internationally. In her art practice she uses sound, text and sculpture as tools to build interactive installations. The context in which the piece is being exhibited in is examined and interpreted, giving the audience an intimate, curated experience. She holds a bachelor degree in Fine Art Critical Practice BA (Hons) from the University of Brighton (UK) as well as a degree in project management within culture from Kulturverkstan (Sweden).

During my residency I will work on a project that explores the relationship between building, bread and ritual. “Before I Die I Shall Bake a Cathedral” are the words of the poet Edith Södergran (1892-1923), from her poem Hope, which this project uses as its starting point. —Louise Waite
