From the Same Mother (Fiction, Reality and Dreams)

Galerie A.M.180, Prague, Czech Republic, 2016
With the title From the Same Mother (Fiction, Reality and Dreams) I address the emotional, the practical and the elusive.
Finding comfort in abstraction, topology (stories) and material that by memory and tactility speak to us on an emotional level.
The artifacts in this exhibition are newly produced objects as well as work that dates back as early as 2007. Together they
form a story that is nonlinear, evident of past activities and responsible for future thoughts.

With the support by The Swedish Arts and Grants Comittee.
