APPENDIX
2023
Dimensions Variable
Handcasted bronzeplate made from old coins, pigmented walls, pollen seeds, found objects, storage space, caution tape
 

This place holds a placelessness, it has regulations
 and one of the walls does not reach to the ceiling. 
This place is not featured in the floor plan of the building but
 is used as a storage and emergency route.
 Even though the room does not exist, it still has a place and it is located here.
It has been given a name by the property staff, Blindtarmen (Appendix).

ACOUSTIC PLATE 1&2
2023
185x165x95 cm & 180x120x165 cm
Ceiling panels of wood wool mixed with cement and water in suspended aluminum frame


The acoustics in a room can be good or bad, it depends on the user. 
These sculptures consist of two suspended aluminum grids reminiscent of an 
inner ceiling. They are prominent in the room but their functionality is put out of play, 
number 2 matches the height of the artist.
 The room’s acoustics and enclosure are fragmented. 














‘Swift as Thought!’ 
2023
Variable Dimensions
Collaborative exhibition w/ Oda Haugerud
Contact mic, mixer, speakerelements, metal casts, walnut water, sour milk


The exhibition provokes what is interior and exterior
 through site-specific interventions. Physical components leak and are in transformation 
in the gallery space. The intervention takes shape through stains, 
displaced sound and casts of negative by-products.

THEATRE
2023
50x60x40 cm
Replica of an Animal Hotel as seen at Schiphol Airport: pvc-curtain, sheet metal, galvanized metal vent, rubber wheels

Through the window with the half-closed blinds at Schipol Airport, I saw something peculiar
 with my early morning, half-closed eyes.
It looked like an ambulant theatre but it was only 60-70 cm in height.
 It was a metal box on wheels, with a tilted roof and an air-vent. 
Blue, thick plastic made out the fourth wall, it looked like a theatre curtain.
 On one of the short-sides there was a note that read: “ANIMAL HOTEL''. 



















GOSSIP
2023
04:00 min, 10x10 cm
Contact-mic recording of drain-pipes in the building, a former telephone factory, manipulated sound, metalbracket and speaker, looped every 20 minutes
Poster from archived document of a consonant analysis of the former telephone factory. 
(Omkopplingar: Avskrifter, Listor, Dokument, Arkiv (med särskilt avseende på Midsommarkransen-Telefonplan), p.544, Cecilia Grönberg, Jonas J Magnusson, Glänta Produktion 2006)















ABSORBENT
2023
60x120 cm, set of 10
Hand-dyed silk with the residues of rust, lichen, birch leaves, eucalyptus, coins; acoustic panels (stone-fiber mineral wool), custom metal brackets











GIRO
2022
300x300 cm
Historic coins (oxidated, worn out beyond recognition), decaying rose hip fruits, lonely buttons
-->

The different objects are laid out on the floor in a formation reminiscent of a children’s game, there is possibly one or several
logics to how the objects are placed and it is unclear whether it is in the middle of a game and if it has a winner.
 The etymology of the title, giro, dates back to ancient Greek’s word for circle and is today used in circulation of money.
















THE FIRST TOOL
2022
300x60 cm
pulleys, porcelain, carbine hooks, schakles, rope, dried leafs, metal chains


The pulley is sometimes included as the sixth one of five in the system of simple machines
 where solely one source of power is used, at the cost of longer distance.
 Most of the objects and materials included in this sculpture seem to be inseparable from utility,
 although that can also be questioned.
The rubber springs are casted in porcelain, the dried leaf is held up by what also made a hole through it.


















FRIVOLITIES
2021
Dimensions Variable
Fragment of political campaign poster, casted concrete from negative of heelshoes, gravel, crumpled wet newspapers
