Text, Sculpture, film
residency 2018 November
I live and work in Copenhagen. I am a visual artist, writer and filmmaker, often combining all three medias in film, drawing or installation projects.
Aesthetically and content-wise, I am interested in sociality and finding ways of working in social plat-forms, but keeping a strong sense of own-style and handwriting. Beside my own praxis I participate in a lot of collaborations and run a weekly writing group at the art academy in Copenhagen. Here, we develop student-based teaching, respond to each other’s work and create new work collectively. I also run a small publishing house Longetti with a Danisg writer Julia Bertelsen, we publish short stories, essays and non-fiction.
Another continuous element in my works ate the use of garnish, hobby materials, make costumes, wearable sculptures, social performance experiments,
and write poetry in a consumerist pop language to investigate the feminine, the comic and the cute.
I feel related to artist as Isa Genzken, Meret Oppenheim and writer Hiromi Ito and young poets writing in the genre ‘Gurlesque’ (girly and grotesque) in this interest.
My work have been published in several magazines in Denmark and in one New York based magazine, I have published two small books.
In the past years I have been making a collaborative film project with colleagues
in Tokyo, the collaboration gained both aesthetic experience, language
experience and helped me find new potential for works, expanded my skills and
thoughts and I wish to return and learn more, collaborate with more Japanese
artist who work differently from me but whom I share visions and interest with.
Anna Stahn, the writer of ‘Daily Miracle’ and Yukako Atsuchi, the Japanese translator will read the text ’Bathhouses’ together out loud at the exhibition in the closed Takasagoyu Kikunoyu Onsen bathhouse in Kofu as a performance for the opening in English and Japanese.
‘Daily Miracle’ is a small book containing four short stories and various illustrations of painted prints and will be published in Japan this autumn Friday afternoon. Its about sorority, fallen-fruits, jealousy and companionship and translated by gifted translator and reader Yukako Atsuchi into Japanese.
