With horror-mixed delight, surprise, fear and joy, I accepted
the offer from Österängens Konsthall for an exhibit.
This is my first solo exhibition since I left the Academy of Fine Arts in 2016. It is
panic. It's horror. There are thoughts that maybe I should be studying to be either a carpenter or a nurse. It is big. It is scary. But it's fun too.
Before visiting the art gallery in the autumn of 2020, I zoom in on "Österängens Konsthal"l via Google maps. The art gallery is located in a larger building, with neighbors such as a pizzeria, grocery store, gym, Thai massage etc. I get an idea to combine the activities in the building in different ways. Collect materials, waste products or connect to the activities somehow. Imagine, for example, being free to stack a mountain, a shape, a sculpture inside the grocery store, as a giant Lego building where the enormous shape will be picked apart by customers over and over again. There was an artist who built a pyramid of beer in one gallery in Berlin a lot of years ago. At the opening, all visitors sat on the pyramid various steps downing beers. They were probably quite happy. "
