LINK TIL INTERVJU

“hôtel” is a threefold installation consisting of:

Part 1: A concrete sculpture 
Part 2: A soundpiece permanently installed inside the concrete sculpture
Part 3: Six wall-hung bronze sculptures


hôtel aims to redefine and play with notions of what a temple is and can be. At the same time, it explores how a sculptural installation can consist of fragments that are scattered in time and space, yet physically and conceptually connected. The piece invites visitors into a range of (sound)rooms for introspection, where contemplative rituals and experiences can occur on several levels. The interest and artistic approach to the concept of temple has been philosophical rather than religious. Perhaps it is an attempt to inquire how we relate to existential conundrums rather than defining whats being questioned.
