Jord som sol’n förlät (Earth that the sun forgot)

With inspiration from science fiction and theories of the abject, the sculptural series Jord som sol’n förlät revolves around thoughts of what is considered disgusting, repulsive and unwanted.

Here the abject refers to something that evokes a certain form of discomfort due to it challenging our identity and self-image by dissolving boarders, e.g the boarders between the inside and the outside of a body or that between the subject and the object.

The pieces reflect a fascination for the repugnant and a will to explore how we relate to the alien and the unknown.
