LIFE

description

The opening words of the book of Ecclesiastes mention "Vanitas vanitatum et omnia vanitas" (“vanity of vanities, everything is vanity”). For Nordic artists, especially working in still life, the wonderful variety of life is celebrated representing fruits and flowers, but this reminds to the viewer the destiny of natural beauty innate in its extreme fragility. The installations I create using ice have a vital time of a few hours and reminds us the fragility of the environmental balance.
