“And I said to myself that Private collection could well become a classic.” Bergens Tidende.

In Private collection I enter the world of objects. Everyday objects and the human body are being handled in time and space, proposing a simultanous subject/ objectification. I am interested in the nature of things, such as gravitation, weight, balance, stability, shape, and volume, and how we organise things which by classifying, collecting, and order relates the object in time and space. The sincerity of an object, and its chameleon like quality brings about transformation and dissapearance. I try to explore my own capacities of presence/ absence and transformation, and expand the world of objects by entering inside.
