Victoria Skogsberg's art practice is based around an interest in existential, spiritual and psychical experiences, in relation to atmosphere, spatiality and the psychology of space. Skogsberg's particularly interest is in the notion of 'the empty room', absence and presence and the possibility of rooms and interiors somehow communicating feelings and ideas to us. How rooms are experienced by the mood transmitted within them; how the evasion of one presence creates another:

An empty chair speaks of a future arrival or loss: it anticipates the person who will sit; it remembers the person who did sit. A body leaves its imprint on the chair, which holds the memory of the body in place.
(Alice Rayner)

Through experimenting with materials from 'captured' experiences of spaces, moods, extraordinary events and scientific studies, Victoria Skogsberg develop atmospheric, investigatory video and installation works based on the interaction between the physical room and its interiority, the constructed installation, the moving image and the human psyche of the visitor.
