Bodily transitions

Presented in Galleri KiT (2020) and Solsiden (2019), Trondheim

The project reflects on the body’s steadiness and elasticity in the various transitions and transformations it undergoes in a lifetime – the body’s ability to return to its original shape after being stretched or compressed. By abstracting the human body it undergoes a transformation and alienation also within the project. This is an alienation one can recognize through various stages of life – illness and health, pregnancy and childbirth, in growing from one’s childish body to becoming a full-grown body, constantly aging. The transformation is found in the duality between the hard and the soft, the fixed and the elastic, the hidden and the exposed.
