Abstract [sv]

Serendipity

– Att söka en sak, och finna någon annan.

Det är mötet mellan ett medvetet och ett undermedvetet skapande som tagit form ur drömmar och konkreta tankar. Det handlar om det som får ske i huvudet när en inte anstränger sig eller har försvarsmekanismen på som i den vakna vardagen – och inte heller försöker leva upp till föreställningar och förväntningar.

Det handlar om att hitta det som inte syns, bara det som känns. Det innersta som bara är.

Det är saker som är glömt, eller gömt. Som hamnat i skymundan, saker som förlagts. Förlorats. Som upplevts, förbrukats. Åter funnet, åter brunnen.

Abstract [en]

Serendipity

– To go in search of one thing, to find another.

It’s about what is allowed to take place in the mind when one doesn’t make an effort or have their defence mechanism switched on, as in the awake everyday life – and not when trying hard to live up to others’ conceptions and expectations.

I show a meeting between conscious and subconscious creating, which takes shape from dreams and physical thoughts.

My work is about searching for what usually doesn’t show, and instead finding how it feels. The innermost that exists.

I twist and screw up reality and recreate an alternative world. I make an abstract version where surface and structures are central. I work with intuition and energy, where the starting point for my process is a reality in the shape of something already existing, an experience that took place, or a real object. I reuse its form or function. An experience can be a dream that took place in the mind, a happening where reality and fiction have met. I collect stories from memories as a way to get a second chance to catch something that already went by. It’s about time, waiting, loss, longing and expectations – dreams that reflect into new shapes of reality, like going on a search for days that escaped.
