The sculptures in the Hedenhös series is based on the question: what can be done using a few sticks, a string and a specific method?
Extruded claycoils are bent randomly and provided with holes at regular intervals. They are joined together with the help of a climbingrope, this is like a three-dimensional puzzle, where the premises is that the rope is threaded through all the holes in making the sculpture. The method in itself makes it impossible to plan the outcome completely, much is left to chance. I am using the method as a artistic expression, leaving traces of the process in the finished object, as a memory of its making. A sort of primitive extraordinary clutter and chaos.
