Artist Statement
By conforming the human psyche and interactive movement, I create a sense of what I will call a story, a performance. It is important that my work is interactively in order for everyone, despite background to experience art in a individual way. I want to create a playground for adults - a place for the inner nature to come alive and play. A playful, but absurd situation could lead to conversations that would never exists elsewhere. I like the contrast of naivism and the unpleasant.

I as a woman, honor the female handcraft tradition – crochet, by maximize the volume and take for space.


Genom att förena det mänskliga psyket och interaktiv rörelse skapas något jag vill kalla en berättelse, ett performance. Det är viktigt att mitt arbete är interaktivt så att människor oberoende av bakgrund kan ta del utav konsten och uppleva den på sitt egna sätt. Jag vill skapa en lekplats för vuxna, ge plats åt den inre naturen att få leva ut och få leka. I en lekfull, nästan absurd situation skapas möten och samtal som inte skulle uppstå någon annanstans. Det naivistiska kontra det obehagliga

Jag som kvinnan, hedrar den kvinnliga hantverkstraditionen - virkning, och maximerar volymen för att ta plats i rummet.
