FLUX OBJECTS- 2013-ongoing
The project is based on the idea of the sculpture as a continuous process rather than a stabile and frozen entity. The first step was made in my studio in Brooklyn, NYC, 2013, where I packed the remains of one of my earlier installation /performance into three packages with black rope. They were taken to Stockholm at Mini bar Art space, were I invited artist Marja- Leena Sillanpää to transform one of the packages into a new shape and form with her choice of rope. That sculpture is now on its way to Vilnius by the caring hands of curator Jacquelyn Davis. Were she will pick a person/ artist to transform it once again.

The participants was found through an open call process. After my performance the reamins was taken to an unknown place.
The Kid Below, 2009-2010
The Kid Below tour was a part of Carnegie Art Award 2010. The performance took place in the five nordic capitals during 2010 in collaboration with a soundartist from each city. For each new exhibit I reused and re installed the installation with the remains form the last performance. In this way the sculptures were abstracted into unidentified artefacts and pieces and in the end there were practically just pebble. Some of the remains were saved and is now resting in my garden at my country house in Värmdö. Please check under AUDIO/VIDEO for more details.
REACTOR at Kulturens hus, Luleå
The performance was split in three parts. Were the first part was on the opening night were a big abstract drawing was created. The second part was two weeks after the opening were I tore up the installation . And the third part was some days later were I asked the audience to help me pack the “drawing” and create a new object. This sculpture is now on display during the two remaining weeks of the exhibit. I am planning to keep the sculpture and unfold it and re- install it at an upcoming event in Stockholm this winter.
EXILE, way out west
The installation was built up one week before the music festival was held. With help of two friends ( Tilda Lovell, artist and Tova Lundell, architect) we created a site specific installation in the heart of Slottsskogen in Göteborg. The materials we used were second hand books, clothing, plasterboards and A LOT of plaster. The venue was split in two parts. The first night I did a performance in collab. with Oni Ayhun who did a club gig after my live-act, the “stage” changed character and became a dancefloor for the audience. The second day I did a collab. with the same concept as the night before with artist Marja-Leena Sillanpää and techno Dj Dasha Rush. After these two venues the installation was on display for one day. The fourth day I dumped the remains in a vaste ground.
