Lives and works in Denmark
Project Statement Komfort Skulptur 2019 The works titled komfort skulptur (danish for Comfort Sculptures) is part of a series of chapters investigating our dependence on comfort, both in relation to the objects and architecture around us but equally concerning the hunt for luxury and perfection. Looking into the materials which form the core of our everyday the project Komfort Skulptur portray the materiality and awkwardness of foam, and its many possibilities. The works become a sort of documentation of temporary sculptures that were not meant to exist or to last. The works reflect on the relationship between the image, sculptures and the tension which is created when wanting to freeze a moment and obtain a certain shape. The works act as results of experimentation, where ideas around control and power is sought, an act of domesticating.
The project aims to look closer at materiality and surfaces, and investigates this via essays and photographs. The value we put on certain objects and the importance of history and origin shapes a framework for the overall interests and process. Within the project I look at sculpture as something temporary rather than fixed. There is a certain playfulness involved in the production of the works and by testing out the shapes and forms that can be creating using materials which normally has a very different and more ‘useful’ function. Being inspired by the need to look at and be around ‘functionless’ shapes and forms that have the sole purpose of being viewed as a decorative element. I have within the last couple of years been very fascinated with the production of sculptures, the steps and almost scientific aspects that are sometimes involved.
