”BEYOND INFINITY” about being curious
Adventures in the sky. Amelia Earhart looks at us through an aiming lens surrounded by the planets in the solar system. Andreas Mogensen (first danish astronaut) photographed space thunder – a rare phenomenon – and dreamed of more adventures in space like the hot air balloon in The Flea and the Professor – fairy tale.

“THE LAST SINGLE-USE STRAW” about being patient

We are taking it beyond the limit, but maybe we just want to slow down.

Materials: Silver, gold, oxidized silver, enamel, photo, transfer film, moonstone, topaz, aquamarine, rutile quartz and rubber.


“UNDER THE SURFACE” about being tolerant
Can we comprehend almost 30 different genders? Jesus… or Conchita Wurst embraces them all in the form of littel gold linked gender symbols, while the audience in the background is clearly frightened… or excited? Masked divers looking through rainbow-colored opals after a dive in the eiderdowns (The princess and the pea – fairy tale).

“MIRRORS NEVER LIE” about being humble
”It’s just a pair of shoes,” the (danish) prime minister said. Imelda Marco’s shoe collection was made into a museum. A president asked for a Van Gogh painting for his bathroom, but got a golden toilet instead. Ceausescu’s bathrooms were also made of pure gold. Meanwhile, a floater is pulled up and plopped in again (The fisherman and his wife – fairy tale).

“YOUR CURRENT LOCATION” about being empathic
Flip flops made of plastic bottles dripping pearls. A comforting bear paw on the shoulder.
To put yourself in their shoes and listen – can also be exaggerated – as monitoring and surveillance.

”LEADING THE WAY” about being open
Refugees on their way to a safe place. Thumbelina sets the course with the help of the EU stars. Are they meet with a handshake, a closed door, or is the door open? European refugees from World War II on their way to Syrian refugee camps – not long ago the flow went the other way.
