About 

b. 1983 in Carlshamn lives and works in Stockholm and Blekinge

I predominantly work with moving and still images usually deriving from different photographic methods. With the base in queer- and photo history/theory. Deconstructing and fragmentizing, sometimes both physical, social and psychological borders. 

The aim of my work is to exist in an interdisciplinary space outside the realm of the linguistic structures. Resting in the gap between the performative act and the Symbolic order.

Collecting materials from different spaces, both physical and non physical, placing them together with a ritualistic and intuitive method, in whatever material or non-material, transformational objects and installations occur. Just like on my retina.
