Work from the solo exhibition Undirlög/ Under Layer 

I have a background in both contemporary dance and costume design, and within those fields of art there is a written symbolism narrative. Both of those forms of expression tend to be seen as feminine. Since feminism is a big part of my approach to art, I like working with things that are considered feminine, like textile, the female body and tailoring.

The work is focused on the textile inside the painting. The morphed polaroid photo of girl painting her breast is vaxed inside the painting. It is an experiment to make noise without words.
