Bad Lover 2013

Collaboration with Jonas Pike
Cecilia Hillström Gallery, Stockholm, Private collection

'I propose a situation where two artists are equally independent in the process of making their works. One is mimicking graffiti through embroidery, and the other is in a sense breaking the autonomy of art in the gallery space. Neither artist need to entirely agree with each other’s aesthetic choices but are still working in parallel to each other.
The conventions of art will be re-named and re-situated. By paralleling two different practices in one space, I would like to produce a ‘third space’ that blurs the boundaries between different sensibilities, spaces, realms of imagination and modes of authority, a space where the sense of command and authority is constantly shifting between two contrasting but parallel points of view.'
