Aune, Merete Joelsen

Drawing, text, installation

With drawing and poetry as my principal media I’m investigating time and space. I usually work in series on paper, but my compositions are frequently put together in a situation, e.g. an installation or a book. The contents of my investigation are characterized by idea-based deviations. The deviations range from micro to macro scale, and are presently influenced by an eclectic interest in astronomical phenomena and the expanding universe. In this perspective my artistic practice is a perpetual research process, in search for quiet and introspective arguments which can say something about «here» and «now».
