Artist statement

As a textile artist I use a craft process as a tool to get a better understanding of the world we are living in. My work contains perspectives on popular culture in close relation to corporeality, identity, life and death, out of a fascination for the human body. I collect textile material in my surroundings, quite often used and worn out fabric, yarn or clothing that I work with as a starting point in my artistic process. I tend to dissect things, take them a part and put them together. Sculpting an object has become like a surgical incision; with needle and thread I sew layers together, piece by piece, into an organic shape. The outcome is essentially sculptured objects arranged in different installations that holds performative layers.
