Plans for the stay:

"For my solo exhibition KAPSEL 2023, I worked with old sails to create sculptural volumes for wall and floor. During my time at Søndre Green, I will continue to work on this theme. Now, I want to further explore using cotton, linen, preferably from recycled textiles. I will also incorporate hand sewing and embroidery.
I am in contact with Agnete Sivertsen at the Hardanger Museum, who is one of the few carriers of knowledge about the folding technique and stiffening used in the headgear of the Hardanger bunad. Like many craft techniques, this knowledge is in danger of being lost. I will adapt this technique in my sculptural works."
