INPUT OUTPUT II
“I have made sculptures which I have given properties that I see as crucial for our bodies. Absorb, penetrate and let something pass through.
To make the sculptures I have been working with materials that I have used in the gym to explore and examine my own body.
Most of the materials are found and they carry a history. The materials have already been worked over in different ways by the body. Time has done its work. The element is ready. Just like that perfect tree to build a house out of or as a diamond that is yet to be polished. The material tells me what to do with it.
Out of those found components I have also made two-dimensional works which are presented on the wall. The works on the wall - including the paper collages - I see as notes and descriptions of personal experiences I have had with my body.
These are experiences of inside and outside, expansion and contraction, circulation and rotation; Sensations of different forces and dualities are in focus. One input and output.”
