Jewellery as an amulet – a bearer of memories – a memento. Creating scenes, as a stage designer offering the observer a gateway to an inner performance value – a world outside our rational and material reality. Proposing a Beyond that cannot be formulated in words.

My project is about metalingualism and roots. It is about silence and buildings – about longing and striving to remain, building, putting things in order and arranging things as if we will never disappear.

Observations and questions about our mortality and our soul are important at a time when cynicism and self-sufficiency are on the increase. As humans, we have our origins in the knowledge of the limitation of our own life, whilst at the same time it is the last thing we want and are able to think about. The issue of meaning makes itself felt.
