The immersive space in Hallbergs site specific spatial installations are compiled of video, photography and text. They are often co presented with seminars or workshops in to an extended practice. The works can be described as documentary explorations with interviews, archives and portraits as the points of departure to expand up on a space where the viewer enters the narrative from personal layers based on memory and experience.
The artistic position is located in contemporary and historic narratives connecting spheres of existence to larger social and political processes . The notion of the ethnographer is present in the combination of a practice based in documentary an tunneled via conceptual treatment. Where she explores the positions of within and inbetween in the fabric of the installation as a physical sphere. The tension with the absence, and presence the relation between still and the moving image and the notion where the two meet. This brings forward contingencies on geopolitical conditions and critical reflections on belonging.
Hallberg has also undertaken artistic and curatorial work in the expanded domain of social art practice in Sweden, Russia, Belarus and Mexico . She is curator and coordinator for AiRS at Skovde Art Museum.
