ROCKING WITH GRANDMA
The exhibition "Rocking with Grandma" was shown two times during my year at the prepratory art school Gelesborgsskolan in Stockholm. First time in November 2017 as a solo exhibition as a part of the education and the second time as part of the schools spring exhibition in May 2018.
This piece was built out of 1.500 strips of white paper. Every strip is shaped to a form consisting of one small and one large loop and represent the relationship between a mother and a daughter. The connecting of the two frames symbolises how the responsibilities in families shifts over time.

Hand-rolled and knotted rag rug made out of magazines, glue and cotton string. The rug measures 140x220 cm including the fringes and is completely made from recycled interior design magazines.
PAPILJOTT / CURLERS
The bench and mirror are inspired by my Grandmothers dressing table were one of my strongest childhood memories of her is when she puts curlers in her hair.
REDSKAP PÅ FINSKA / TOOLS IN FINNISH
A bucket and scoop for the sauna, a carpet whip and a flyswatter are exampel of the tools used in my grandparents house.
The form is inspired by an elephant herd's way of gathering around a newborn baby elephant and its mother for protection. With the trunks pointing outwards they protect against external danger, with the trunks pointings inwards they help the mother to get the baby up on its feet. The work is made out of white copy paper and mounted on a lamp ring. Ring dance can be illuminated from inside the as a lamp and can be used as a lamp-shade or as a hanging lamp.
Each Sphere is unique in its shape - the shape and expression are completely dependent on how many, how long and how wide strips of white copy paper they are made of and how they are put together.
In the work Sunflowers, I recreate my childhood memories from the summers in my grandmother's garden, where she grew large beautiful sunflowers and roses every year.
The sunflowers are created from thin strips of white copy paper, sparsely built and illuminated to maximize the shadow play they create.
