MY JOURNEY

 

After my BA in 2006, i was scared of entering the proffetional world, an was lucky to learn more on TV. IN 2007 I took part in a dance competition on national TV,  “So you think you can dance”.  I ended up adapting learning and performing seventeen different pieces as I competed every week and ended up winning.  

My life experiences is filled with contrasts and contradictions.

With my background as adopted, adapting is natural and has been a sentral part of my wide interest for merging expressions in dance and performance art. 

I started working with my own background in my artistic work.

 


 

I worked with Erikk McKenzie from 2016-18 in the project "ADSR", which explored sound and movement,where I learnt how to play electronic music live and combine it with dancing

 

"ADSR" led to my new expanded artistic work in visual art and performance.

Through my Master in Fine Art Performance, i explored how My approach to my work is inspired by Fluxus art movement. Fluxus emphasized the artistic process over the finished product. They were playing, and dialoging between different practices and mediums, where radicality, rituals, and the body in action was the center of the birth of performance art. My work is shifting and changing as I am.


In my MA in Performance from the performing arts academy in Fredrikstad, I focused on how to include, to listen, to work with time and to "dance" through new elements, such as electronic sound, situation and video in interaction with each other. I have held happening concerts on the bus and subway, and made video installations. I have created soundscapes and performances. In my Master's degree at Zoom, I mixed performance, live electronic music, video, text and dance in an interactive, online art TV show called "Shifting modes."

Shifting Modes
In my work prosess, I switch between actions -  I include actions with sound, body and video. The transformation or shift, what happens in between the actions, is also an action in itself. In the shift, I listen to what is with the whole body. This is my creative starting point. The shift takes place between the actions of movement, sound, dance. 

Now I am at a place where i am geeking into focus, so not shifting,  but staying.
