Heidi Edström, also known as [ingentinget], is a performance - and visual artist whose work mainly revolves around the concept of the Knöl.

The Knöl is that which stands out, that are different and that interrupts anything otherwise flat and homogeneous. It is describing a lumpy shape, something awkwardly cumbersome and is a synonym for bad behavior or potatoes. But first and foremost, the Knöl is something that we don’t want, that we’re trying to flatten out and erase from our lives in a constant craving for perfection.

Heidi is also a co-founder of the performance art collective Knölkollektivet, together with the dancer and performance artist Ester Olofsson.
