– My focus is the same as it has always has been: Trying new things.
In my early teens my art history teacher introduced me to the ideal of the uomo universale. At that point, it felt like I had found my calling. Or, it had found me. Since the ideal is impossible to achive, I’m always occupied with various projects, experimenting with different mediums of communication.
My curiousity has led to a variety of experiences. I’ve made award winning animated short films, toured the world as a musician and worked with art mediation for a variety of institutions.
Since 2019 my professional focus has been writing. I currently hold a position as writer and critic for KUNST, the leading Nordic art magazine. I also serve as beehype’s Norwegian correspondent and as a board member for Paragone. I occationally do freelance work for publications such as GAFFA and Ballade.
This website functions mainly as a portfolio, divided into sections dedicated to different mediums, reflecting the diversity of my practice. The website also includes a blog, that is exclusively in English. Hopefully you’ll find what you’re looking for.
