Ellen Macke Alström (b.1989, Sweden) works with stories about and out of emotions, everyday life and social structures, using a fantasy world parallel to our alleged reality to visualise them. With a foundation in drawing, her works take form in various mediums such as ceramics, textile, wood and text, using these materials as explorational tools which build up stories, taking form as scenes from a book or a play. Ellen lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.
