Towards the Self (2018, 03.42 min) is a three-channel video piece. The foundation of the work lays on the concept of self and its’ contradictions.

I can’t get myself out of sight, no matter where I look, and still the body, the self, remains unfamiliar to me. How does the body represent the inner being? Is there an actual self, or is it a cultural construction, an idea of ”me”?

Through challenging my physical boundaries, I map out the stages of being and not-being, seeing and not-seeing. I use my body as a tool as I examine the connection with my surroundings. With these actions I aim to challenge the surface. I reach for the unspoken, for the ever-remaining absence.
