I was invited to produce a performance at Live Art Strömstad. I made a 2x 5 hour work, theatricizeing my artistic process on an outdoor stage in a park in the town center. The performance was slow and an installation was constructed from conception to completion in the duration of my stay.
I was invited to partake at Hildelund Kunstfestival where i produced two instruments for the wind in the trees. The work was made from wood sourced on site, hemp thread, bells, lead weights and fishing line. The fishinglines where attached to the treetops and to the instruments placed in the forrest.
As part of the open day i presented four works created during the three week residency period at Velferden in Sokndal.
Three weeks in June, 2017, I spent three weeks in at the Artist Run initiative Veldferden, hosted by Maiken Stene. This is the third year of this residency and the residency had a focus on on working with the local community from the small town of Sokndal. I decided to work and collaborate with a group of kids from the local school. As a group we talked about art, played games, experimented with different materials and techniques.
(above) For the collaboration with the kids, i created a card game called Troll or Three. The game was design to discover the mystical in our surroundings.
