Artist statement

«Åpent atelier lørdag 27. april 2019.»

My artworks are conceptual visual narratives, describing the roles of human beings within fantastic organised systems. Figures are depicted sucking red light, catching fleas from deer, stretching out their tongues ad infinitum or stealing blankets from airplanes. My deliberate exclusion of the human figure is also of great importance and neglected chairs, empty clothing and haunted ghost towns have been integral to my stories.
I am inspired by rituals, choreographies, cinema, graphic novels and ancient manuscripts. I seek to address the relationships between people and complex themes such as consumption, control and dominant social habits.
Drawing and narrative are common to all my works although I also produce paintings, photographs, site-specifics, installations, videos and objects.
