Res inventa (found object), 2010
Epoxy / Bag
Exhibition space:
Charlottenborg
The work was a part of the graduate show from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, installed on a podium. I never did like that detail, I wanted it on the ground, like a object thrown out of the sea, but the floor was to 'busy', so it had to be installed on a black podium.

Background:
An early saturday morning out rolling with the baby-carrige I found this 'golden' bag in an ally. I later decide to encapsulate it in epoxy to get the notion of a dramatic moment encapsulated in 'amber'

Frank Stella, Connections 1- 6 (detail), 2015
PU-resin cast of Frank Stella monograph / Nails
A part of the groupshow: "enhver handling er et citat"
Exhibtion space:
Udstillingsstedet Sydhavn Station
The work was about aestheticizing the references, it was dealing with the notion that everything we do, is inevitable quoting, this was an attempt to aestheticize the content and the quote.

The Void, 2007
Exhibtion space:
Larm Gallery
As an artstudent, I've dreamed of being a radical full of radical content and meaning. The work was exhibited at a commercial gallery, and had originally a mall-guard, guarding it. It was very much a work with content as the main focus. At that time I didn't see the aesthetic qualities, as I see today. in 2007 it was political, in 2017 it's (in my view) pure beauty (what ever that means)

mor (1946-1993), 2013
(mother (1946-1993)
Oil on canvas
Exhibtion space:
Udstillingsstedet Sydhavn Station
The painting was originally exhibited on the poster-stands at Sydhavn Station. Because of this violent context (at that time the most violent trainstation in Denmark) I wanted to do a work of art mor (1946-1993) that was sensitive / pathetic, and therefore completely misplaced in its context.
