The artist works with similar elements as the heroes in both the old and new heroic legends. He goes on a journey, overcomes borders, has to pass trials, encounters a medium, experiences life, death and miracles. He does things and sees how objects, people or he himself change into something else.
From a historical point of view, each period produces its own interpretations of how the phenomenon of freedom is to be constituted and exercised. In relation to frames, structures and awareness of context, we consistently recreate the paradox of freedom in the constant establishment of new structures and freedoms.
