#306-310 March In F 2021
This work was created by me marching back and forth over five frames placed on the floor in the shape of an F, wearing a pair of clogs. I tried to do it in triple time. See a video of the complete performative production event here: https://youtu.be/jgy0so1QQmU

I work with conceptual, process-based painting. Using a unique technique, my works are made from ordinary construction filler in oak frames. They have a graphic expression and yet tactile materiality and often take the form of series. Sometimes as installations extending into the room. I also do participatory art projects.
I base my work on the notion of a primary alienation in the human subject. By using painting, I can formulate something around this lack, or the desire, integrated into our perception of reality. I´m exploring whether this condition can illuminate other forms of social and cultural alienation—for example, privileges, class, racism, and xenophobia. In short, different types of distances between people.
Educated at Kunstakademiet in Trondheim, I exhibit extensively in primarily Norway and Sweden. My works are part of private and public Scandinavian collections, and I have done several public commissions. I live and work in Oslo, where Buer Gallery represents my work.
