Our contemporary world disturbs my mind.
In any way I need to reflect this.
With stiches I fasten the reflexion for a while, I make it visible.
To transform anxiety into creativity can calm my soul.

Here IN BETWEEN I want to show images that occure during the searching for something new. In this way I try to understand what I will do the next.
I read a lot of texts that give impulses. One important book is ”Omställningens tid”, ”Time of Transition” by Björn Forsberg.
My last project WATER AND DESERT 2003-2014 is completed after a serie of exhibitions in different places.
A few works are shown in the second part of this exhibition.
Now I’m searching for a new challenge.
IN BETWEEN I do this show.

In a temple ceiling in the town Bundi in India I found this angel.
Angel from Bundi is made in Lake View Guesthouse, Bundi
When the angel met a piece of cloth it was the start for a concept about angels in a burning world.

Recently I thought very much about the electro-magnetic rays that appear to be very dangerous for Life. The towers and archades come from a place where Rudyard Kipling completed The Djungle Book.
