Opening of Dust to Dust in the Not Quite Gallery in Fengersfors

Jag har utforskat den gamla pappersfabriken i Fengersfors under de senaste åren och blivit inspirerad av de mörka rummen och de storslagna maskinerna i sönderfall. Den är en svunnen tid från start, arbete och förfall. Jord, ljus och fröer har samlats i hörn, på väggar och tak. Den nya växtligheten fångas mellan geometriska former under tiden som byggaderna sakta faller tillbaka mot marken. Elektriciteten som en gång strömmade genom fabriken har torkat ut men har lämnat spår som väcker fantasin till att formulera berättelser om vad som varit och vad som kan komma. Dust to Dust är en del av en teckningsdagbok under arbete, med teckningar och föremål som hyllar visuella skeenden och utrymmen som lockar min nyfikenhet och förgyller mina upplevelser.

I have been exploring and observing the old paper factory in Fengersfors for the last few years and am inspired by the dark quiet rooms and the magnificent decaying machinery.  It is a time lost between the inception, working and decay.   Soil, light and seeds have gathered in corners, on walls and through roofs.   The new growth is captured within geometric forms as the buildings are slowly crumbling back into the ground.  The electricity that once flowed through the factory has gone dry leaving remnants and clues for the imagination to formulate stories of what was and will be.   Dust to Dust is part of a working sketch journal of drawn and made objects that pay tribute to visual spectacles and spaces that pull at my curiosity and enrich my experiences.

Images will be posted soon!
