Leilighet 420 - fragmenter av et minne  (Apartment 420 - fragments of a memory) 


The project is based on an investigation of memories of my own upbringing and past, where I mapped all the places I lived, visited the places and then drew down floor plans of the homes as I remembered them. Then I started with an apartment I lived in on Grünerløkka in Oslo (apartment 420). By returning to the place where I lived, I brought to life events and memories of objects, things I had forgotten. I did not try to copy these objects that came to me, but rather recreate them as I felt them. Freely translated from memory, I cut all the objects, dreams and events that came to me down into the wooden boards. The repetitive, slow act of carving became like a meditation, and made me remember. The memories intersected, time became relative, and everything merged.

Back in apartment 420, which is now empty. Only the ghosts of those who have lived here are left. My memories of my time there, hanging in the living room. Surprisingly, I found my old chair there, in the bedroom, in the same place where I used to have it, a last object from the apartment , which I leave there when I now leave the apartment for the last time.

I don't live in apartment 420 anymore. Someone else live there now, with his stuff and stories.


I took my woodcut into the living room, and hang it there from the roof. His things and my memories of the apartment affect each other. The woodcut covers his furniture and things, which in turn gives new shapes to my memories.

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.

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?
