Artistic work

The starting point for my artistic work is everyday observations and findings. With existential curiosity and naive investigation of the immediate vicinity and its periphery. By finding, combining and in various ways amplifying subtle details, I am constantly looking for expressions that somehow resonate in the body.
I like to be in the grand and small scale at the same time, to look for the cosmos in the coffee grounds or to find the precious in the snow. Recently, I have been fascinated by sound, exploring everything from field recordings, noise, silence to digitally and electronically generated sounds and noises. Technology and materials are nevertheless secondary, it is the idea and feeling that guides my work.

A large part of my artistic work is done in collaboration with John Huntington under the name Kanslibyrån.
We are an activist group and artistic institution that since 2007 has explored the irrational as an act of art and resistance, bureaucracy as an aesthetic and everyday life as an art space.
