CIRCUITS

2021 SVAVARSSAFN, HÖFN, HORNAFIRÐI, ICELAND


This series, Liquid Diary, is a registry of my daily usage of liquids of various kinds –

in most cases my consumption of coffee, tea, fruit juices, wine and more. The fluids often relate to some short stories from my everyday life.

I have kept samples of these liquids, both at home and when traveling. Layer by layer, I paint with these liquids on a 20 x 20 cm sheets of paper and write on them the date and a brief description.


This occupation of mine has been going on for several years and is still in progress.
