Abstract [en]

My working process is craft based and influenced by devotion for the textile material and techniques, but the concept is just as important. I mainly do sculptural objects where I treat fascination, frustration and disgust for the human body from a personal perspective. I am also deeply fascinated with Michael Jackson; an iconic figure that I adore above all else. A man with an inner musical ability, dedicated his entire life to tame and signify it through his body. My master work is an investigation where I look upon similarities and connections between my fascination with the body and the admiration and fascination with Michael Jackson. The text is an insight into my master exam project and my artistic, creative process. It is also a story that in some way reflects fascination for corporeality and for one person’s identity as well as desire to reach perfection and maintain control. Endless love and affection for one individual and to be obsessed by going on and on almost like a repetitive verse of a song that never ends.
