drift

the ground
on which I stand
moves
move me

The continents and therefore the ground under our feet are permanently moving. In Iceland, I worked with the traces of this activity. How can I define myself and my human dimensions in relation to these global movements that have been going on for billions of years?

I stayed at SÍM in May 2018 and September 2021. I have worked with traces of volcanic activity on Reykjanes peninsula that occurred more than 800 years ago and are occurring right now.

'drift' is a series of works on the theme of continental drift that I have been working on since 2013. The works from this series were created in fieldwork in Iceland, in my studio, and in exhibitions, directly on the walls. Impressions of the series on my website under 'works/drift' and of the work process on my website under 'fieldwork'.
