ComPleat – textile objects inviting audience to bodily engage.

Exhibited at Is this color? in Rundetårn, Copenhagen, DK, 2019

As concept ComPleat is a (non-)living matter between being and not being. ComPleat is a tissue; as a representation being in between living and dead – a metamorphosis for a transformation process, being in between past, present and future. The ComPleat tissue has a possibility to transform or revealed itself in several ways; as a trophy, as a representation of its former owner or as a second skin for the human body.

ComPleat invites the public to interact with the objects – touch, enter and twist it. Interacting with the objects one can ask: What colour is (your) skin – pale or the colorful?

Rankefod – a three-dimensional textile stage backdrop

In 2005 I created a 10 meters long and 6 meters high tree-dimensional stage backdrop for the performance X-Act/Kitt Johnson’s solo performance ‘Rankefod’. The visual expression created both an intimate space and a landscape. Moreover, in lightning the landscape is transformed. Every part of the backdrop was hand pleated or in other ways added structure. The backdrop was created at a residency at The Danish Art Workshops. More information HERE
