work in progress
After years of waiting i finally had the chance to spend a longer period of time on a residency at Varanger Halvøya in the northern parts of Norway.
The birdlife, the kven-culture and the fact that its located in the polar region is 3 different reasons why i want to make a photographic work about this place.
In june 2019 I will return and continue this work.
Blooming Life in the Wreck of Death
The title of this project is a rewritten quote from Mary Shellys Frankenstain. The project will be exhibitied 3 times during 2018, due to the 200 anniversy of the book Frankenstein. I step into the roll of Victor Frankenstein as I started to experiment on plants. The question around how we in the future will be able to produce food for a larger population on soil that has less and less nutrion I thought that maybe the solution is to make a potatoecactus that can grow above ground in sun, faster than a potatoe can grow right now in the soil.
The experiement is fake news. I use non scienctific methods to make the new species, turning them into objects that are both beautiful and disgusting at the same time.
