As an emerging artist based between Stockholm and London.  Geraldine participates specifically at the intersections of site,  ecological realignment and otherness regarding the relationship between witchcraft/folklore/myth and the female body. This manifests as performance, sculptural installation, short film, soundscapes and participatory workshops 

Drawing from initial psychogeographic based work which was concerned with archetypes of the wild, sexuality and transgression in relation to carnival/ritual, place and event, Geraldine’s practice has gradually evolved to acknowledge her own relationship to esoteric and lost knowledges,  as experiential research rather than anthropological study, in this way she questions the  notion of consensus reality, blurring the lines between fact and fiction.  

She is currently constructing work around reclaiming a rightful relationship between the body and land, which was severed in the aftermath of the European Witch Trials and later the Industrial Revolution.  By eschewing a capitalist methodology and instead opting to work intuitively she attempts to create new mythologies, concerned with communal ritual as a conduit for reacquaintance with land, spirit and other biological kin, in this way facilitating experiences of psycho-topographic, cyclical entanglement.  With a strong assertion that art can become a conduit for ecological regeneration,  through a phenomenology of animism and cosmological accordance.

As a curator Geraldine has been engaged in various organisations whilst running her own experimental art space, Konstapoteket,  in Stockholm between 2011 and 2014.  More recently she has been an active member and secretary of Fylkingen in Stockholm, alongside organising the occasional art/experimental research event, specifically  producing and co-curating the biennial symposium Conjuring Creativity – Art & the Esoteric.
Geraldine has also played an active role in various artist collaborations – most recently the ecofeminist magickal aktivist group NKK, who have performed a number of rites both publicly and privately in various institutions in Stockholm, including Moderna Museet.
