TOMHET: Att möta en rädsla

Abstract [sv]

Det här projektet tar avstamp i en personlig erfarenhet av tomhet från min barndom. Jag tar mig tillbaka till 1970-talet för att återfinna en väl dold rädsla som vibrerar i bröstet på en 5-åring. Den känslan försöker jag greppa, föra med mig till nutiden och gestalta i en skulptur.

Genom att studera varierande sätt att se på tomhetsbegreppet inom olika områden och kulturer utforskar jag bakgrunden till den abstrakta tomhetskänslan som skrämde mig som liten. Jag beskriver även min arbetsprocess med skulpturen och delar med mig av tankar, inspiration, motgångar och tvivel. Det är ingen omedelbar vandring från A till B utan en trevande färd på en krokig väg, där jag ömsom hittar rätt och ömsom går vilse men aldrig upphör att ifrågasätta mina egna påståenden. 

Abstract [en]

This project builds on a personal experience of emptiness from my childhood. It takes me back to the 1970s for the retrieval of a well-hidden fear that vibrates in the chest on a 5-year old. That feeling, I try to grab, bring back to the present and turn into a sculpture.

By studying the different ways of looking at the concept of emptiness in different areas and cultures, I explore the background to the abstract feeling of emptiness that scared me as a child. I also describe my work with the sculpture, and share my thoughts, inspiration, setbacks and doubts. There is no immediate hike from A to B but a rambling journey on a bumpy road, where I sometimes find the right way and sometimes get lost but never ceases to question my own assertions.
