In short I am interested in what is experienced with what through. Society and art. System and logics. And how to set these things in motions. I use the inherent structures of places and specifics functions, both as a material to be used and a method to be developed. To sharpen a now, in the present and to create "new place".

In the dissertation and through the research project Potential of the Gap at Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art and Creative Writing at UiT, within the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme, 2014-2018, http://artistic-research.no (NARP), have I been engaged with public space and semi-public space and the relationship between place, language and identity in relations to (systems + singularity), convention and logic. [And how to break.] The work have been mainly performative: with place and audience as a material to push what is taken for granted. The gap amplifies the movement as well as the relationship to one thing and the other. thus for me it is a metaphor describing something greater, not only the possibility to see, but also to negotiate and to be able to be in the inbetween-, the reflection of the now.
