The complex meeting of space, time and the things that suround us. The works address socio- political issues in an imaginary and non-literal way. I attempt to "frame" situations or conditions in and between people, and intend to contribute to a colllective and individual experience of wonder and reflection; to confront reality with something fundamentally human. I want to form, shape, tell and convey with a set of materials, with an insisting attitude towards something being at stake. Fear, despair, hope and play is investigated whilst I search, gather, plunder, connect and present.
There is a rather subjective hierarchy connected to the materials I use, or stores and collects in my studio. A small piece of plastic, a  pipe, a grassstraw or a tired iron tool; everything (and everyone) is included as vital in my life as it is now, and can contribute to realizing ideas of what reality is. I stick to an impresise and imporivsed approach. The works with sculptural objects, location and possibly soundscape is an independent and relatively introvert process - but when the work then is established, I consciousky changes focus towards the collectiveness that might arise when the audience meets in and around the work. In which way can one move around the space - together or alone - what does one experience individually and what do we experience 
together?
