Self-portrait

”I work with corpus.  This Swedish term refers to objects that stem from the hollowware tradition. However, I try to use this word literally and apply it more generally; corpus as body.  Your body, my body, our bodies, relationships with body, parts of body, bodies of objects.

I find working with the body in this way facinating. Even if one cannot relate to anyone or anything else, everyone can relate to their own physical self. By referring to the physical, I can more easily address complex issues such as language, illness, anxiety, and identity.”
