Keramikk og elektronisk kunst

Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 26. september 2020 --

I am currently working on projects related to phenomenology as well as the causes and consequences of climate changes. I am now developing works which tend to mix ceramics and electronics in the form of interactive installation. My practice is inspired by ecology, new technology and the shift in perspective brought by the Anthropocene. These are key concepts that enable me to bring forth meeting points between humans and landscapes. My projects are active objects which will undergo evolution leading to self destruction through human presence. These elements are not belonging to a post-human condition which intend to be indifferent from our bodies, it needs humans in order to evolve. Human activity became the dominant influence on the planet, and visions of the future are never real predictions, they are support for the projection of the fear and anxieties of the present day. My undergoing project are closely intertwined within the problematics related to the notion of collapsology and solstalgia. These two neologismes reveal, first, the study and elaboration of how industrial civilization will collapse and what will replace it, secondly, the emotional disquiet about negative changes in one’s environment.
The objects I am producing include the visitor, who is no longer a spectator but an actor
of this destruction. This project of embodying a landscape is anchored in a timeline since
it materializes a specific point in time, thus creating a rupture point. It witnesses the
ecological changes our world is undergoing. Feelings of distance disconnect us, make
us passive, thus bringing this landscape closer to an audience is a way to confront it.
