Bio/CV

variations of matter, words, sound, spirits and value paradigms

I am working as a responsible utopian, striving to ask better questions in the quest for a more sensuous and poetic society.
In my work I examines, reconstructs and deconstructs cultural phenomena.
Prior to the academy of fine arts I did religious studies at the university, and this perspective on cultural phenomena is recurrent in my research and works. I strive to apply a horizontal view of various phenomena of interest, and so to rank and treat them as equal.
At the moment working on the project “Money speculation and production of magic wands” that juxtaposes shamanic working methods and the current monetary system.
Production of magic wands is performative actions where I build magic wands based on shamanistic principles, and through rituals use alternative networks such as mushrooms and water to spread knowledge, thoughts, philosophy and reflection about money and value.
Why is it that our monetary system and value perception are as it is?
What will it take to transform and replace the monetary system with a sensible and sustainable one?
Why is it easier to imagine the end of human kind than the end of capitalism?

Yarning for a more poetic society, a society where art is all around us, present every second of the day, I founded and are curating Spikersuppa sound gallery, art from January to the beginning of March every winter at Spikersuppa ice-skating rink in downtown Oslo.
