Residence in Lofoten

 

 

 

 A two week residence @ NNKS Kunstnerhuset in Svolvær, Lofoten, Norway.


The mountains in Lofoton has fascinated me for a long time and finally I got to experience them. For two weeks I was watching and walking in, on and around the formations of the mountains. I made clay sketches of these formations. For some particular shapes of the mountains I felt a special interest. My concern was not an intellectual understanding of this interest, rather I tried to connect this immediately interest with my hands forming the clay. In this way I wanted to explore the feeling of relation between me and certain formation of the mountains. Feelings of relations fixed into pure form. I think and hope this study will become useful in my work with my organic shaped structures and relations between them, people and places. Back in my studio I will explore these ceramic sketches in relation to my structural pattern making.
