Malmö-based artist Samaneh Roghani is this year’s recipient of the Ester Almqivst’s Stipend, which is awarded annually to an artist living in Skåne. On May 11th, Roghani will present a new work at Skånes konstförening.

From the jury’s motivation
“Samaneh Roghani receives the stipend for a sharp and empathic practice examining the existential crisis experienced by the individual through the encounter with repressive power. Poignantly and effectively, she captures an existence where every movement and thought is circumscribed by censorship and prohibition.”
