Statement

I have been working with installations since early 1980.

Scientific research on the human brain, the postmodern philosophy, the evolution of the human mind, especially the interconnectedness of matter and mind and the emergent properties connected to this, are the important constituents of my studies, and can be seen as allegorical reflections in my installations.                                                                                                            

In 2008 I showed the three room installation called “Matter & Light “ at the Amos Anderson Art Museum in Helsinki. In this exhibition I studied the idea of evolution from matter to thought, meaning and self reflection.

I’m often assembling my installations to fill several rooms, so that the subject matter can be sensed in the given spaces through the connotations of the combined materials, form, and thought. 

Some of the materials I use have a transient character, like water, breeze, light, grease, and pigment powders. But also stones, concrete, steel, glass and other reflecting materials are often parts of the installations.  I prefer to create installations  in which beauty combines with austerity, meaning and thought.

In my latest work I´ve used video-installations in which I´m continuing with the studies of human perceiving and identification. Also studies on cultural and social borders and mental locations are the constituents of my installations aswell as the studies of the margins of culture and identity

2002-06 Acting as curator for the group of five artists called Desire to See; 

 

Since 2011 Producer and member at the Artgroup of 9 Artists and Scientists called SJÄLÖ9.

This group is studying otherness, deviation and isolation as a sociopsychlogical phenomena.

In my latest private exhibition in 2017,  I studied WATER in its different connotations by also inviting both a koreographer/dancer and a scientist to express their ideas on this subect matter during two public performance events planned in combination for the exhibition.
