News from Nowhere
Østlandsutstillingen - 2010
This work offers an ironic perspective of the value of symbols that are established as totems in contemporary societies. These symbols cohabit our intimate space – physical and psychological – to such an extent that they determine and model our way of thinking and relating to others. I combine iconographic elements from the social sphere (political, religious, mass media) with elements and fragments from the private sphere.
I propose neutral spaces where the iconographic elements no longer contain their symbolic value and the relations between them appear absurd and tragi-comic.
