In my work, I examine human relations to natural and cultural landscapes over time in critical perspectives. Through site-specific installations, actions and objects, I discuss, critique, and reflect on philosophical ecology and living conditions for people, animals, and plants. My art often has a strong sense of materiality, with references to textile crafts, archeology, and architecture. In recent times, my own family’s Sami origins have come to add in-depth aspects to the artistic work. For me, it is important that the Swedish colonization and questions about cultural identity in the backwaters of the colonization are viewed with critical eyes. I myself use postcolonial feminist perspectives.
