2014-2016 Curator at Galleri CC, Malmö 

I investigate documented history through artistic research. With a fascination for synchronicity I seeks to uncover hidden relationships and to disturb lines drawn between various disciplines, by entertaining alternative timelines through rhizomatic storytelling.

While undertaking research, I am sensitive to reoccurrences of certain pieces of information, of dates, locations, shapes, of colors. The narrative is made complicated by branching based on these coincidences. The reoccurrence of a certain date can send the narrative off in unlikely and unexpected directions. Alongside generating ideas, the "mind-map-like" research leads to an investigation and exploration into materials, techniques and mediums, vital to the process. Many times the projects reach completion in a full but skewed circle. A ghostly return to the point of departure.
