det som aldri stilner is based on the lives of five women and four men living with eating disorders. The information in this work is gathered from a series of interviews I conducted with five women and four men from 2019 -2022.

dagbøkene (2021)
Text printed on sketch paper and displayed in a grid. Exhibited in Porsgrunn Kunstforening, 2021.

At the beginning of 2020, I conducted a series of 15 interviews with five women aged 18-35, where they spoke about their experience of living with an eating disorder. During this time they were also given a diary. The diary was meant to be a safe place where they could write down their thought and feelings that they did not want, or could not share during the interviews.

dagbøkene consist of short sentences and paragraphs taken from their interviews and diaries.

She who sleeps does not sin (2018)
Curtains, video projected on the wall,headphones, two black chairs. Video installation, Centrum för fotografi, Stockholm 2018.

In this work I interviewed my mother, aunt and great-aunt about the grief they experienced after my grandmother commited suicide. In this work I spent two months conducting interviews, going through photographs and trying to understand how grief effects families, relationships and why it is difficult for us to express our feelings in public.
