”Cecilia Parsberg’s artistic practice have often brought her towards the hazardous and complex but important and necessary political undertaking in speaking about the other, the marginalized or underprivileged of society (engaging both sexual, social and political displacement and suppression in her work), or the underdogs in political conflict; generating challenging works of art, blending documentation and activism, where often the artist herself is present as witness, investigator, mediator, supporter.” (2006 Jan-Erik Lundström, BildMuseet, Umeå)
