Artist Statement

My work deals with the human body and themes of a psyckological character. 

The serie: ”The Dead Mother Complex” is based on a theory and research of the french psychoanalyst Andrè Green.  It is about the early  mother-child relationship. When engulfed by emotions, the child seeks after an ekko in the mothers face. There`s a confirmation of the infants emotions. The mother is the world for the child, and it identifies with the mother.

When the child lacks confirmation from the mother, it tries to be with the mother in other ways, such as f.ex. imitation. The child is left alone with its own emotions and the child must be its own mirror, It must nurture itself because the mother has failed and is unavailable and emotionally dead. The childs self is threatened by fragmentation and chaos. The most vital function a mother has, is to be a container for the childs mental life.
