Tendenser – Give it Time

The exhibition “Give it Time” explore the various ways in which craft is experienced, the focus is time – daily rhythms, the momentary, and the on-going. I was invited by the curator Stephen Knott to participate with a series of self-portraits that I made in 2011. At that time I consumed an enormous amount of chewing-gums. The repeated persistent movement of the jaws was somehow accompanying my working rhythm – keeping my, often monotone work at a steady pace.
