Artist statement

- Åpent atelier lør 23.september 2023 -

I believe the nighttime to be more political than the daytime, if not more. Specifically in Nordic countries where we experience the shift between day/night seasonally, I am interested in how we can create space that is daring/caring. I aim to investigate the social norms of the night and those who break them.
