”Soft and hard diary”

In this project I intend to investigate my artistic - ceramic - personal process of a given timeframe. There is an open beginning with loose threads to start off with, but a firm deadline for closing the process and move on to a second stage; the exposition of the work in a public setting.

The project is called ”Soft and hard diary”. The title can be read both literally - it is a project where soft and hard material is used, and where transformation between soft and hard is central. It can also be interpreted metaphorically as the objects are visual representations of a diary I am interested in how material, structure, weight, texture, color, form - objects - holds meaning that goes further than the object itself - it becomes a vocabulary of its own. For my research and work, I find that the area of crafts and ceramics is a rich source. It has strong connections to a daily life, material and objects of use has both a common understanding as well as significant and personal narratives.

The project starts with a few objects and painting/drawings that are assembled to form a frame for the installation. The objects are the results of different exercises, beginnings, ends and experiments in my studio. I want to go in dialogue with these objects in an open workprocess to further explore and create a narrative. The process stops when the exhibition opens.
