Erika Trotzig is a London based, Swedish artist, working with sculpture. She has participated widely in group and solo shows including at Paradise Row Gallery and Gallery at Number 32 in London: Recent shows includes APT Gallery and Gallery at 32.  In 2021 she was selected for the Pada Studios residency in Lisbon.  For several years Erika had her own clothing label, making one off, handcrafted pieces which were shown internationally.
She makes precarious structures, using temporary and unstable construction methods such as gaffer taping, bandaging or weaving pieces of wood together with yarn or string.
Mirroring aspects of architecture her work questions the process of remembering, both individual and collective, and evolves into space-dividers, obstructions and fragments that alludes to ruins. Her works are humorous: un-heroic, un-monumental and absurd, teetering on collapse.
Central to her art practice is the notion of failure: failure as a political statement, failure as protest, as a methodology. Erika is a graduate of the BA Fashion and MA Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, where she is also associate lecturer.
