“I see myself like a choreographer where the sculptures are my dancers”
My work has recently consisted mainly of sculpted figures and objects made from materials such as stone, bronze, rope and clay. The sculptures and images are assembled into larger installations to create scenes and situations that explore interpersonal relationships and phenomena in society.
I aim to create a reflective surface, a room for reflection, in which the viewer's thoughts and memories are activated.
I am interested in how the unique characteristics of individuals and groups are influenced in different contexts. Small adjustments in the body language of the human figures and the placing of the objects create new shades and pose new questions.
Raku is an old Japanese outside firing method that I use to fire the clay. It provides a varied surface with cracking and shades and sometimes metallic surface. This makes the process challenging and exciting as I have to give up control and accept chance and nature as collaborators.
My dream is to carry out a big project in a public space. I am currently in the process of making sketches for an art project in the entrance of a hospital in Karlskrona and hope to complete this work in 2019.
The first time I visited Cútar it was love at first sight. I was attending a course in contemporary art. Cútar glitters - the village made a lasting impression. The memory of wandering in the beautiful terrain and looking down to the sea far away, the delicious food and good conversations made it impossible to stay away
