Evaporate

Evaporate – textile art that explores loss. Singularly alone, the feeling of loss – lonely, empty, bleak and tearful. Evaporation also reminds us of the soul leaving the body and rising. Atoms that make us cannot be created, changed or destroyed. Like salt crystals our loved ones continue to exist but in a different form.

Evaporate was created as part of a body of work that was exhibited at The Crypt Gallery, London.

Sum

Installation art about death, Sum explores identity and individuality within a mass grave. Mass graves contain the remains of many individuals each with their own memories and individuality. Research in forensic anthropology and it’s use to determine individuals has been the inspiration for this work. Genocide atrocities are perpetuated through history in an endless cycle, and is represented here by a fibre optic circle that contains the empty vessels.

Marked

The endlessness of atrocities of war are explored through the act of labelling. Labels ususally determine individuality, but each label here says the same thing.

* Fjöldamorð – Massacre
Bjóðarmorð – Genocide
Þjoðernishreinsunum – Ethnic cleansing

* Iceland is a country with some of the least conflict in modern history – violent words spoken in a  non violent language.
