Born in Karmøy, Norway 1988.
Based in Stavanger, Norway.

My work revolves around the body and the mind, its presence or lack thereof, its diseases and dysfunctions, its suffering and anxiety, its reaction to the everyday life. I investigate the balance between something repulsive and something beautiful, between the feminine and the masculine. The process often starts with something personal, a feeling, a thought, a memory, an experience, an episode, a situation. I examine what this does to me, how the body reacts and how it can be expressed.
