WHEN YOU HEAR IT, IT SPEAKS SLOWLY, TELLING YOU IT’S OKAY
SÍM Residency, Reykjavík, Iceland
Working with objects in landscape, as a performative action, and as a research project. Picking up the thread from previous projects from Finnmark and Bergen, I wanted to work on creating new objects to not only explore new landscapes, but also share new experiences. Visiting my mother's home country alone for the first time, I found myself lodged in between being a tourist, an artist and my identity as being part Icelandic. I worked through this together with the objects, as we visited sites, watched the sunset and thought about the uncertainty and ignorance of finally arriving somewhere you have only dreamed of.
