Berg, Åslaug Krokann

Drawing, video, objects

In my work I deal with the loneliness of human beings in relation to oneself,others and the outside world. Apparantly absurd scenes and actions show us characters who are carrying the knowledge of impermanence through life, on their way towards death as the inevitable end.
Being impermanent, there is also the longing, or missing of what have been, could have been, or can become. The sorrow of life, the sorrow of loosing.
Nevertheless there is a presence of humanity og recognizability ,there is a urge of showing respect and solidarity towards eachother and give space to the different and outsiders.
