Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 26. september 2020 --

I travel the world searching for intriguing stories and challenging materials with which I produce my art. I make drawings, paintings and objects using airplane blankets, ox intestine, fish skins, poppy petals, used serviettes and precious minerals. Drawing and narrative are common to all my works.
I create dystopias addressing relationships between humans and complex themes such as consumption, control and dominant social habits. I research ancient manuscripts, explorers' drawings, encyclopaedias and instruction manuals. I deliberately exploit these documents, altering their intended purpose or distracting from their original function, thus defying common logic.
My works depicts people sucking red light, catching fleas from deer, stretching out their tongues ad infinitum or stealing blankets from airplanes. The human presence and absence is also of great importance along with neglected chairs, empty clothing, abandoned boats and haunted ghost towns have been integral to my stories.
