2012  |   WHAT A MESS!
Group Show at Art Fair in Hydrogenfabrikken Kunsthall in Fredrikstad, Norway 24-26 of august.

Ballade of id, object made out of small table and dead branches with sound. Id-pictures is 8 documentary photographs with close-ups of plants and shrubs.
In id-pictures and Ballade of id, I wish to visualise and achieve a better understanding of Freud's structural model over the psychic apparatus, "id, ego and super-ego".
Id or the unconscious is said to consist of displacement and densification. Id breaks through with emotional outbursts like cracks in the personality.

2010  |   S. White Gets the Picture.
Solo Show at Gocart Gallery in Visby, 29 oct-20 nov

"S. White Gets the Picture" deals with interpretations out of what we obtain in the media and the world that surround us. Walt Disney's classical film version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from 1937 could be read as a story of an awakening, as described in oriental mysticism in seven steps. Information for this interpretation is searched for and found on the internet. The exhibition raises questions about what we want to believe and what we choose to embrace as the truth. Seven paintings represents stages of personal growth and awakening. On the floor - a group of stoneware figures shaped as bended knit hats in different colours which corresponds to the hue of the paintings.
