Born: Stockholm, Sweden
Lives: London, United Kingdom

The use of various methods, like travel, video, sound, choreography, performance and writing, sits in the expanded notion of my work – where new and obsolete technologies reflect one another as the analogue and digital swap places; modes of representation are questioned as they blend in each other or dissolve and reveal, or obscure, various flip sides.

My artistic practice occupies a sensibility towards something that can't easily be articulated, it emphasises a state of impossibility, a sort of failure.

The synthesis of different modes of investigation and creation results in multi media and often interdisciplinary works, which approaches the metaphysical as a ground for the artistic opening up of explorative and transformative spaces.
