Ida Börjel, poet and translator. In her eighth book of poems “Omsorgslabyrinten” (Bonniers, 2023), the reader is guided by the voice of a conservator, into the text and into the art museum’s archive. The human voice guides the gaze and thought in the walk around crafts and oil paintings, mirrors and utility objects, all of which have equal value in the conservator’s eyes, and in front of which she wages a vigorous battle against the ravages of time. Previous books include “Kusumentköplagen: juris lyric” (2018), “Ma” (2014) and “Ringa hem – avlyssnade ryska soldater vid fronten i Ukraina” (2022) Ida Börjel has been awarded Region Skåne’s cultural prize, Doblougska prize and the Erik Lindegren prize, as well as Nature and Culture’s special scholarship.
