The video relates to ”the in between” that exist amongst humans, human and nature and the natural and the manmade. A physical and mental experience is presented through an abstract and sensual interpretation of a human shape placed in nature.
The video is a paraphrase on the painting Meadow Elves by Nils Blommér.
I explore what might be perceived as beautiful, I do however not seek to romanticize or glorify my environments. I want to bring the work past our preconceived notions about what we expect to be confronted with in a certain encounter.

The video relates to ”the in between” that exist amongst humans, human and nature and the natural and the manmade. A physical and mental experience is presented through an abstract and sensual interpretation of a human shape placed in nature; a roadwork landscape that is both beautiful and daunting, recognizable and alienated. Is this a broken nature or a landscape full of anticipation in the process of changing?

The scenes communicate a fragile balance between man and nature through intimate presence and absence, where both parts are omitted and vulnerable.
