David Larsson is an artist and teacher based in Stockholm, Sweden. In David Larsson's artistic practice, objects and photographs play a central role as carriers of social and political histories as well as mediators of affects. Larsson works with long-term artistic investigations where the results are continuously presented through installations and exhibitions. Thematically, David Larsson's work often revolves around issues of social development and modernity, political events, natural resources and collecting/archives. In many of the works there is a social dimension which is manifested in workshops, conversations and an idea about the exhibition format as primarily a stage for dialogue.

Larsson has exhibited in venues across Sweden including Uppsala Art Museum, Norrköping Art Museum, Malmö Art Museum, Konsthall C i Stockholm and Kramfors Konsthall. David Larsson is a board member of the artist run organisation Rejmyre Art Lab and co-chairman of The Collective Brain, a network organisation for small scale and artist run initiatives in Sweden. Beginning in August 2024 Larsson will be senior lecturer in sculptural practices at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm.
