The 'stomach communities' sculptures are constructed of two- and three-dimensional parts made of a variety of materials and surfaces. The process of creation was determined by a constant negotiation between tactile surfaces and clear forms. The sculptures thus feel both immediate and carefully balanced. They play with the changeability of volumes and perspectives, while at the same time pocked and wizened surfaces complicate their perception. The textures of the used materials are simultaneously displeasing and attractive, producing an odd gut feeling. As the eye explores the shapes and surfaces, the observer enters into an interaction between approach and distance, and begins to weigh aspects of transformation, authenticity, mimicry and the unknown.
