Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier søndag 27. september 2020 --

I employ the techniques of storytelling and narration that seek to overcome the traditional format of a documentary. My artwork is patched and shuffled within the layers of biographical material¨ each element that I set up has a meaning¨ signs of a journey that never ends once one sets off I also speak about universal experience in image¨ metaphors and in the language of those who never reach their destination.
