“I start from the body. Gliding, touching, smelling and feeling through my skin and my feet. The body is a site. Where I keep my heart, my bones, and my stories.”
This project is rooted in my artistic past at the Art Academy of Trondheim, where I link the grounded and earth-based, physical healing mechanisms with superficial healing qualities of the digital realm. This manifests through the use of video, performance, found materials and a sense of arousal. I will use Galleri Blunk as a kind of sanctuary space where the senses are both overwhelmed and calmed at the same time. Loam Heart invites the lonely, broken and cold hearts in to an enchanting womblike space. Work in progress includes video, textile, installation and sculptural/experimental materials. A series of performative gestures may arise such as
– a group meditation
– sing love songs
– free massages (digital and body)
– improvised performance of dance and sound
