Talking Heads – Current Body of Work
My “Talking Heads” are a series of encased scrolls where the case is shaped like a head. The scroll comes out of the head’s mouth. – I have long been fascinated with how we speak and how diversity represents in speech pattern. This work is reflecting on that.
In my previous body of work I explored the impact of societal pressure on women. How we speak and are being spoken to about the topics of reproduction. I made a variety of different works between 2013 and 2020 on the topic of pregnancy and miscarriage.
Milk and Blood and Thing with Feathers consists of a life-sized sculpture of the lower body of a pregnant woman. The womb is cut open and a dead baby/bird hybrid can be seen in the cavity. The sculpture is exhibited together with spoken poetry, please see video.
346. A Journey While Staying as Still as Possible is an illustrated scroll with a day to day account of my 7 week hospital stay and fight for the life of my twins and myself. Copy number 1 and 2 come with miniature models of the hospital room in which I stayed.
