Linking past, present and future

In the exhibition at the Västerås Art Museum, pieces from my project Linking past, present and future are displayed. Based on the textile, I have tried to create an emotional narrative with aesthetics/inspiration from the Victorian era and their mourning rituals.

“The study of death and bereavement in the past helps us to understand the present, especially in the context of the modern tendency to avoid the subject of death and to minimize the public expression of grief”*.

The exhibition is rooted in photography's unique ability to frame time and together with spiritistic spirituality a world is created. A world that moves between past, present and future. My desire with my work is to give space to the grief, the narrative around it and with that hopefully create comfort. I have wanted to depict what is not seen but felt, what scares me, what I call an emotional narrative.
