Weight of the world (installation view), 2014, 5 x 5 x 69.7 cm, My 4.56 billion years old iron meteorite from the Sikhote-Alin meteor crash in Russia in 1947, iron material that I found in the metalworkshop of The Royal Danish Academy in 2009 which I since lost and then re-found hiding in the dark of my cellar.

PRESSEMEDDELELSE

This show is from the inside and out. The pieces in the show are made out of personal objects of mine, and objects that either have been residing in space or have been built to reside in space. Things very close and some things distant.

Through the years different pieces of iron have entered my life, and somehow taken up residence here. And through the years I have reconsidered their importance, moved them around from place to place and thus contributed to our mutual history - the pieces of iron and mine. And slowly they have become a part of my life. They have no technical and no aesthetic function here. They are apparently only relics of the time passed and life lived, a history of specific moments, of which I know little. Some of them come from far away and have been around for a long time.

It made me think of what it means to reside if you are an object or become one. To take up residence. I then decided to construct objects that were specifically built to reside somewhere else than here, like sattelites. I responded. And I have decided to exhibit both of them.
