Performance at the event Waiting for the Sun 15. november 2019 at Black Box theater. From 20:30-07:00. Stream of consciousness, on various walls, stairs, toilets….ongoing, all night.


How can I capture a moment, the time there and then that I’m in right now? My thoughts, the stream of thoughts that flow through my head, mixed with everything I see, have dreamed, have happened. Going past the self-censorship. I write down everything, becoming an instrument where the flow of thought passes through me and out onto the wall, down to the floor, as spoken words.

“hva var vi” woodcut on textile, extracts from my diary


My diaries where never ment for you, they are my words, my private words, my sanctuary, where I can think freely, uncensored. I read through all the diaries again, it's uncomfortable, like watching myself from the outside, watching myself naked, naked words, naked opinions, not meant for anyone else, not meant to be read again, not meant for me now.

"Ingen hører til her mer enn du", (No one belongs here more then you), with the project I investigate, what does it mean to belong, is it a state? a place? Do I have to belong somewhere? 


I've always been fascinated by photography; the ability to capture the moments I see. I got my first camera when I was 7 years old. I'm looking, searching for places that interest me, that bring me memories of my life, the undefined, that I cannot see. I seek while I drive past, a glimpse, a feeling that is left, captured by camera, a moment - a trace of time. I try to capture what I do not see but that is there – in the corner of my eye. Landscapes perceived through the side window, like in an old movie, I listen to what these landscapes can convey. Can I belong here?
