On the difficulty of leaving a trace a phenomenological study
In my thesis On the difficulty of leaving a trace – a phenomenological study, I present a way to conceptualize one’s own experience in order to take a critical view towards the mundane and to the theories that direct one’s interest and sense of reality through artistic process. The starting point of my work was experiments with material even though the final form is theoretical. The priority of immediate bodily experiences and the question of what is essential in communication are the central themes. The difficulty of leaving a trace is a matter of surpassing the established and encountering the other.

The paintings that are presented in the exhibition are from a particular part of the process. They are some traces left by me while thinking about the conventions of my techniques to paint, especially my way to touch.
