Nupereller/Poses, new project to be shown in 2020/21

Two ongoing projects in tapestry are: One: Little Bird, Big Wolf, on power and roles, made for and to children. Last shown at Deichman Tøyen, and William Morris Gallery. Supported by Norsk Kulturfond(Kunstløftet).


And Two: Nupereller_Roses/Poses, on roles, to care for, and to posture yourself. This project is done with a regard to the norwegian poet Inger Hagerups beautiful poem Nyperosa. I started work on this project in 2018. The roses are appropriated from Den Norske Flora(1974/85 utgaven).

 Trine Lotte Krogseth has written about 8 artists from Nord Trøndelag, and I am glad to be one of them:

I denne utstillingen ved Soft galleri: Solbrända erfarenheter viste jeg vever i sommer. Utstillingen var kuratert av John Raustein for NTK. Nyperosene/ Nupereller ble nesten revet bort derfra:) nå skal jeg veve nye.

Warp in Web/ Free Me: 

 

A few years ago I made a row of tapestries, with a reference to a booklet tematizing women, self-help literature and  loveaddictons. These tapestries were shown to point to how victims after been offended, violated or/and publicly shamed show little but fright of being in relationships, and that they find it hard to get and receive love. The tapestries have titles inspired by webhoroscopes and shown as a whole, the title was: You Might As Well Face It: You`re Addicted to Love. In my sketches, the tapetries had undertitles as: Blush! / Stay!/ Kneel! / Dream!


Addictions is not what I write about in my lyrics, but the afterglows of living, in several ways. And I try to add a little humour, or distance, so we, you, dont have to be blue:

Try to Relax! Exhibited at Hå Gamle Prestegard.
They Say in Life We Make Our Own Luck!
Explode in a Flirtateous Mood!
Love Lies Behind a Green Door!
You Wish It Could Change!
When Grief Comes, book for your songs

The project When Grief Comes was shown at LANDART 2015 in Ask. In this project I  focused on the healing aspects nature, music and birds can have for those that are in need of healing and of seeing an end to misery. The Bluebird is an old symbol of hope and new beginnings. The shelter is made by Kjetil Sivertsen and Odd J. Martinsen.
