About works / performance

In my artistic process I’m currently interested in words and what kind of concepts they hold inside. I like to question the usual understanding of the word and find deeper meanings behind the concept. In my touring exhibition “Life is Dangerous” (exhibitionlifeisdangerous2019.com) I’m researching the concept of boredom in Nordic welfare state together with the audience and collaborators. In my artistry the idea of working together is one key element and I see art as tool to study life and existence, challenge norms and to make visible something that seems to stay unseen. My work evolves by the process and it opens up areas which are unknown beforehand.
