Bella Rune (b.1971) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. She is educated at Chelsea College of Arts in London (1995–1998) and Beckmans School of Design, Stockholm, Sweden (1992–1994). She works with sculpture, including performative elements and experiments with different materials and techniques. Her practice is based on an interest in hand crafts, history, and contemporary culture, and her work often draws on the location for which it is created. A closeness to classic textile traditions, such as weaving, recurs throughout her work.
