Björn Sparrman plays with the mutually forming/shaping relationships between products and their factories, the ‘give and pull’ of production. He received his BFA from Calvin College in 2012. He worked at the Walker Art Center as assistant and exhibition-tender for artist Fritz Haeg’s At Home In the City residency, and more recently at Guldagergaard: International Ceramic Research Center, Skælskør, Denmark. As recipient of the ArtPrize 2014 Pitchnight grant, he exhibited his large public work, The Grand River Checkpoint Project, during the citywide festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
