Rosenström’s practice centres around installations that play with the viewer’s psychological and physical relationship within a specific moment and place. The works are often carefully produced in relation to the sites where they are experienced in. When creating these situations, he uses a wide variety of media and material; from the ephemeral yet tactile qualities of sound to architectural interventions. The presence of the viewer is integral in the work which often remains incomplete until it has been activated.
Rosenström studied in both the Malmö Art Academy (Sweden) and the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, from where he received his MFA in 2007.
His recent group exhibitions include: Anatomy of Political Melancholy, Schwarz Foundation, Athens Conservatory, Greece (2019); Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More, 1st Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Riga (2018); The Garden – End of Times, Beginning of Time, Aros Triennial, Århus, Denmark (2017); Theater of the Mind, Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomsfield Hills, USA (2014). His solo exhibitions include No Land is an Island, Kuntsi, Museum of Modern Art in Vaasa, Finland (2019); a u g u s t, Helsinki Contemporary, Finland (2017).
