Over the past years my art practice has moved between a range of media in an ongoing artistic investigation of materiality. I have explored the nature of matter, the science of materials and the processes of decay and change within organic matter through different angles and methods. As an artistic research fellow at the Academy of Fine Art Oslo, my research project “Why Matter Matters” extends this research and sees it in the light of the new materialisms of feminist science studies, with a focus on issues of identity and touch. What makes the feminist materialisms distinct from other theories in the field is the refusal to see the subject world divided into hierarchies and categories, the importance of maintaining a “we”, and the awareness of the constant transformations and interactions of matter. The artistic research is carried out through a range of media such as sculptural installations, textile works, drawings and performative work.
