In my work I bring materials together to make sculptural installations come to life, which live alongside my drawings. I make objects consisting of different materials, such as salt dough, ceramics, raisins, cement, textiles and beet juice. The materials transform between hard and soft, being static and moving, objects are changing in substance. In these transformations of objects and materials exciting contrasts arise, when, for example, the rough objects made of ceramics balance high up on a rope. In my sculptures, I also explore the relationship to the body and how these two can activate each other. Here I see the objects as something that can be discovered and be connected to the body and at the same time as a sculptural element. Driven by various fictional stories and research into how place can be constructed, I am interested in which worlds we can live in and how we form them. My drawings are connected to this. As a result of certain events, I collect my observations in language. I use these finds as spells describing the earth that carry within themselves poetry, mystery and beauty
