ITEMS I: 21 841 grams of waste

Exhibited at B-galleria in September 2018
 
For the artwork ITEMS I: 21 841 grams of waste I emptied my wardrobe from accessories, clothes and shoes which had been there without any use, just waiting for recycling or disposing. I made notes of the information I discovered from these items, and complemented that with info I could find via web and from my memory. I measured these items and then dismantled them by cutting and ripping. From this process sprang up both immaterial and material substance which I transformed into a textile sculpture, a two channel video and a printed publication. ITEMS I: 21 841 grams of waste begins a series of artworks through which I can examine myself as a part of the global market economy system. My curiosity to understand, what kind of things I get involved with consumption choices I make in everyday life, drives me forward in my artistic work: I wonder what may lie behind the items that I have bought.
