This is a long-term project that has developed in several chapters alongside my own journey as a parent. In 2008, my daughter was born and we lost a close family member. In 2011, I got divorced, and my life tumbled over. I created a book of personal family images in 2010, “Delicate Membranes”, and in 2011 the images “Turning into Soil”, both series dealing with the combination of joy and sorrow, giving life and losing life.
In 2016, I had my second child, and it was a strange thing to start a new family and once again feel connected to both the medical system and to nature through my body.
I photographed nature and my own body during pregnancy, and these images are now part of collages, experiments with wet ink jet installations, manipulations of appropriated images of natural history, ultra sound scans and scientific images.
The images on this page are from 3-day installation at NW Gallery in Copenhagen in 2018. During the three days, the installation would change every few hours.
