Drawing is a fundamental thing within my practice. Drawing can be a sketch, a thought for something more final. Drawing can be final in itself. Making large scale drawings 2 m x 2 m is a time consuming activity. The subject matter again I suppose - is a search... "Looking for strength in fragility".
Cultural night of Copenhagen
This is a short film showing a project made for the Cultural Night of Copenhagen. A lot of old stuff, trashed clothes and items, becomes poetic - and in a way is being reconsidered, by putting it behind a screen and inviting people to play with it. The trashed and ugly colored details of the items are being replaced by knife-edge sharp black and white. There is a certain forgiveness to whatever is worn out. - A "looking for strength in fragility".

The Mobile Balance
The Mobile Balance sculpture has been made especially for the Main Cathedral of Copenhagen, Vor Frue Kirke as a part of 2015 European Cathedral Conference this year hosted by Denmark.The sculpture looks robust, yet has a delicate balance. 12 plates with words like love, courage, faith and more, where the participant can write something personal on a white bean and place it on one of these plates and notice how every little weight changed the being -the body of the sculpture.
The congregation is quietly invited to accept the responsibility of carrying a small, white, fragile egg through the church, and to place it in a nest in front of the alter.
The event is meant to be a simple, yet symbolic act, leading ones thoughts onto future, fragility, fertility, and more.
By asking everyone to individually carry and protect an egg on this short journey, and to leave it safely in the nest, everyone, hopefully, will get a personal feeling of responsibility and humility.
Should anyone be so unfortunate as to drop an egg, there is even a point to be taken in this.
