I go for a walk in my neighborhood. I dont have other plans for my stroll than to walk and gather my thoughts as I move about..
2006 - ongoing, performed at openings of Desconocida Unknown Ukjent
A performance, using voice and silence, held at each exhibition opening where Desconocida Unknown Ukjent is installed.
I am interested in art´s possibility to be a voice that can bring challenging or unpalatable questions closer, not to provide definitive answers but in order to enable reflections. When we come close we tend to care more…Core elements in my art practice are collaboration and time, projects develop and expand over time, some may last several years.
Process, projects, textile, drawing, performance, photography, installations…
