August – and it has only just begone!

Seems I’m working out more and more Dogme-like concepts for my art.

Recent work: “Meeting point”/ shelter/ “åndehul”, time-out-tent for SPOR, next weeks exhibition at Limfjordscentret, Doverodde.

Dogme says:

  1. It must made out af free or cheap materials.
  2. It must be based to a certain degree on recycled stuff. Dont buy! See what you’ve got on the shelves, what you find, trade, exchange, is given. (And again – I know it’s not possible to completely avoid buying. But keep it simple!
  3. The result must be easy to carry/ leightweight. (Keeps shipping costs at a minimum.
  4. Your piece must be flexible/ adjustable (in order to fit various kinds of exhibition spaces and environments.
  5. Of course it must be somehow inviting – and radite a kind of athmosphere so visitors will feel compelled to come closer – preferably even interact somehow – with you/ your work.
  6. It must be full of aetheric energy – so visitors will (hopefully) go on inspired and uplifted.
  7. It must adress or question existential matters – in order to have any meaning and right to exist …

Is that too much (or too little) to ask?

    Looks, well….heavenly. #7 might be a stretch for me but love the Dogme credo. Ah, August.

  2. Dear Hanna,

    I wrote in a book about “Wabi Sabi”, this is a japanese Art-Zen-Philosophie: Keep thing simple, but dont remove the poetry. Yes, thats what you do: your work is full of poetry.
