WHAT SHE KNEW X

74,5 x 107 cm

What She Knew kartlegger himmelen over den nordlige og sørlige hemisfæren. Tegningene dokumenterer samtidig et bestemt øyeblikk i tid og rom da mine tanker var annerledes enn hva de er nå. I denne uavsluttede serien anvendes todimensjonale astronomiske representasjoner av himmelen som en symbolsk arkitektur for å materialisere en form for selvportrett eller refleksjon. Formalt er kartene systematiske, konkrete og stramme, mens de på samme tid står for det motsatte. Noe lik en uhåndgripelig virkelighet som er i stadig forandring og bevegelse.



What She Knew maps the sky over the northern and southern hemisphere. Each individual map document a particular moment in time and space when my thoughts and feelings were different from what they are now. In this ongoing series I use twodimensional astronomical representations of the sky as a symbolic self portrait. My maps are systematic, concrete and fixed, while simultaneously representing remote and intimate realities, in perpetual motion and flux.
