30.03 - 2018
If you might be in Malmö this evening (or during the two coming weeks!) - come to the opening of DELFI’s Window exhibition, with 15 different artists involved, in 15 different windows around Malmö centrum. My work “Form för ytor och plan”  is situated on the first floor at Södra Förstadsgatan 120,  I’m looking forward to scout around town!



------------------

12.03 - 2018
If you, dear reader, would be around Copenhagen these days, you should come by this small window gallery 1,4m2 on Ny Carlsberg vej 26, on Vesterbro in Copenhagen. I have an exhibition there, called Koralvæv, and it will stand for 3 weeks more. Its best to see it in the night, when the streets are empty and quiet, you might see the vague moonlight.


------------------

(There should in theary be some virtual fireworks on this post ) ::
I’m gonna participate in a show called Mindcraft, in Milan in April! This is an exhibition initiated by the Danish Arts Foundation and is held during the design week, with 14 other danish participants within the field of craft..
I’m going to Italy!

------------------

23/01 - 2018 ! slighty new webpage, slightly new studio, and new projects in the horizon.. At the moment I’m back on Bornholm working with clay for a show in April, as well as a small exhibition for a window gallery on Vesterbro in Copenhagen. To be continued.. !

------------------

August 2017 - I never showed how the grass peice turned out in the end!
It was a beautiful night.
A white rabbit came with a torch, gathered everybody at the festival, and we walked down to the beach. A man from an island in the pacific made a fireshow while drums were playing, and then he took everybody down in the water, along the peer - and set the grassring on fire. Everybody was helping to make it happen, which was the best thing.  





------------------

19/08 : 24:00 - We are setting this grass piece on fire, floating in the water at midnight on the island of Mön...

Just a sneak peak from "moon, water", from the exhibition at the sake brewery. I've just put together a short video to document it in movement..

------------------

Six weeks residency at Shiro Oni Studio in Japan is coming to an end, and tomorrow saturday we open an exhibition in an old sake brewery with 10 exhibiting artists. You can follow the facebook link to the happening here.

We opened the anagama kiln last week, the whole front row had sort of sailed down to the front of the kiln while we were on top temperature.. I´ve never seen anything like it, and even if some of our things got smashed - we could literally pick of things from the top shelf, just when we opened the brick door......

been dreaming about a moonbath between the mountains...to be continued...

Tag Team Studio in Bergen holds an event on the 15th of June were they are launching three fanzines based from three exhibiting artists as well as presentation from two artists working with fanzines. I am honoured and proud that one of these fanzines are based on my solo exhibition from March this year, with a text written by Maria Lyngstad Willassen...

------------------

After weeks of travelling along the train tracks, through Russia, Mongolia, China, I flew from Shanghai to Tokyo - and arrived here in Shiro Oni Studio, on the countryside around two hours outside Tokyo. People are extremely friendly, the nature is calm, and the group of artists that will be working individually here, is the such lovely people (we met earlier for another residency in Denmark, and decided to work together again on the other side of the globe). The architecture and culture here is so beautiful, so precise and balanced, I don't know how one could ever make something that could ever be measured with the surroundings here. In a couple of weeks we will fire an anagama-kiln that is situated in the woods (the firing will take 90 hours and we will be working in shifts all day and night). I'm stoked.

------------------



Next friday the 17th of March my exhibition on Tag Team Studio opens, and stay up until the 2nd of April. I've been working on it for the last months, and sort of had an ongoing conversation with my self about what kind of qualities that materials have, that you cannot see with vision. Our bodily experience of things give us very complex information about how things are, and I guess I've been trying to figure out how to reach those other aspects that my body can catch unconsciously. I'm afraid I never found an answer, probably never will, but you are most welcome to come and feel the process I've been into on Tag Team!


------------------

Three good friends of mine has a graphic design studio located here in Bergen (Jah Jah Studio!), and we made a fanzine together recently, telling stories around something as trivial as their table lamp. Good experience to learn about riso prints, and much fun and inspiration!



------------------



Testing and thinking.
Trying to figure out if light is material as well.

------------------

Vestlandsutstillingen 2017 is on! After a few hours of driving in some dodgy snow-mountains I installed my work "sot" in the Art house, Kabuso. The work will be following this exhibition all around the Norwegian west coast in five different venues. If you might be in Ålesund, Stavanger, Førde, Øystese or Haugesund, you might fetch VU17 on the move.

------------------



Some people from idoart.dk wrote about Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling that just ended this weekend. You can have a peek into the past exhibition in the article here.

------------------

Today was the last day of KE16 in Copenhagen, and it's time for packing down. It's slightly fantastic that the work is still standing as well as it is, considering many visitors and the fact that there is nothing but gravity holding the porcelain powder together. Here is a picture from KE's photographer Laura Stamer.



------------------



I've been accepted for Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling in Copenhagen this year ! The opening is on friday the 4th of November and it will be standing until the 20th of November. Pictures and so will follow when things are on place, but come by for the opening or later if you can!

------------------



At 13 today this thing wants to do a little performance....
(Hordaland Kunstsenter on Nordnes, Klosteret 17, Bergen)

------------------



I'm happy to say that in between 23/9 - 16/10 I will be presenting an ongoing and changing installation in the art space called Archipelago on Hordaland Kunstsenter
If you are in Bergen you are more then welcome ot pass by! (there is a link to the main event here )

------------------

VESTLANDSUTSTILLINGEN OG TRØNDELAGSUTSTILLINGEN REPRESENTIN!
"Sot" is going to travel around the west coast of Norway during winter/spring 2017 - and now this September parts of my graduation project "tankens lätthet tidens tyngd" will be represented at Trøndelagsutstillingen, Galleri KIT in Trondheim and later on at Kunstmuseet Nord-Trøndelag. Feels good. Things get to live on and do what they are doing.

------------------



there is movement at the studio

------------------



Last week Ingeborg Blom Andersskog and me put up an exhibition for our group Mother Tongue at the little window gallery for ceramic art; Window 107, on Istedgade i Copenhagen. All 14 artists equally shared a lump of clay, and Ingeborgs clay were put out on the window glass to form small peep-holes, through which the different pieces were narrated. The window exhibition will be there from now on and to the middle of July, and you will be able to see some more pictures on Mother Tongues webpage.

------------------



This weekend, 23rd - 24th of April, I will be a part of a cultural happening called B-open, were artists all over Bergen city will open their studio space for everyone interested to visit.
All studios will be open between 12:00-17:00, and you are more than welcome to pop by our studio space on Strandgaten 205 to have a look at ongoing projects, get a coffee, and talk about all and nothing!

------------------

1st of April I moved into an artist community in Bergen called a205! Here I will build up my studio together with 10 other artist and designers. You can see our homepage here.

------------------

Emilie Magnusson and Kim Gregory, two members from our new collaboration group Mother Tongue organized this pop-up exhibition in Stockholm!



------------------

In the start of 2016 I've been working with heat, air and water - and how to transform these natural resources into movement and form. In the first step, I've been working with traces of sot on porcelain, and wanted to show a process picture as a little sneak peak! The tongue of the candlelight stains very quickly, and the sot gets pitch black.



------------------

From 4th of January to 15th of February, I attended a residency called "Project Network" at the ceramic research center in Denmark, Guldagergaard. We were 14 newly educated ceramic artists and designers who together formed a group named (ceramic is our) Mother Tongue for future collaborations. You can visit our website here. Good energy from talented and lovely people, just the best start of the year!


(process picture from some of what I was working with over there)
------------------

On the 13-15th of January, my coffee-pouring-machine will go out traveling again and I will exhibit at a danish design show; Northmodern in Copenhagen, together with my education KADK. The exhibition project is called NØW! http://www.kadkmilan2015.com

------------------

This summer 2015 I was working together with a wonderful and hardworking scenography team to build up an immersive world together for the performance Sisters Academy, the boarding school, at InKonst in Malmö/sweden. A three week long 24/7 immersive performance experiment in how society can find more poetic, sensuous and aesthetic ways of learning, living and evolving. I made the room for the teacher called The Gardener, were a big restroom were transformed into a place were things grow. Check out the project on : http://www.sistersacademymalmo.se and look into what Sisters Hope are doing, its interesting, its needed.
