Kick Kick, take a dip! At first I was afraid, but now excited, to think twice as much, to make everything fit.
Sometimes it is not necessarily about what ultimately can be seen, but also what the previous actions & methods that has been needed to get where we are. How do objects & material appear in a certain way to make structures visible? Questioning and uncovering these existing structures and making connections in the multitude of things in such a way that we can outline and emphasize them in a visual character.
In a constant interaction of rearrangement, juxtaposing, revising & repeating certain actions raises questions & materialistic interactions that may cause a little tension before we’ll get along. The objects needs the rearrangement for new interactions, a place to be archived, concealed & conserved but it also needs a moment of space so new objects can take their role into the interplay.
Something that is a carrier needs to be carried as well.
Sculptural, painted & found elements can be brought together in different & changing formations. A formal-informal fluid process with elements in constant motion sometimes solidifies in temporary structures & temporal installations. This way of working allows me have opportunities for rest, reflection & contingent benefits that continue to move the practice forward.
