The drawing process quickly gave birth to the desire to allow the figures to leave the drawing board and enter into space, and I started working with the sculptures alongside with the drawings.
Over the next 14 years I worked with the sculptures in an abandoned gravel pit in the woods surrounding Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus. Here I also had the opportunity to experiment with kiln burning in conjunction with the experimental archaeology of the prehistoric museum. The charred wood became a counterpart to charcoal.
During these same years digital technology gained a foothold in a serious way and I started developing the idea of extending the dialogue between the drawings and the sculptures with video projections that contain movement as a new element.
From its very beginning the project has not been planned in great detail, but it has over time developed a life of its own, and today I have at my disposal 3 independent blocks that allow for at wide variety of combinations. The photos shown under “Exhibition” describe just a few.
Twice in the process I have received financial support from the Aarhus Artist’s Bursary, all in all D.Kr. 25.000.
This documentation containing all accessible material will - for as long as the project continues - be updated, and it can be viewed on my personal website under the section "New Site". This website contains all personal information.
The documentation is designed for a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels.
