Stop-motion

As with the rest of my practice, the stop-motion activity is concerned with "Looking for strength in fragility". Most of the stop-motions are kind of portraits of persons close to me. Being both living persons and people who past away. The elements used in the films are of great importance. Elements collected and carefully selected such as bones from a fox, hair from my daughters head, shells my dad once dived after, paper torn from a letter, a broken music box that used to play the theme from The Magic Flute, sand from the Namibian dessert etc.
To me the activity of stop-motion is like drawing. It is like a very, very slow motion- that enables me, to catch up, -with myself.
