Norway

Passionate about the juxtaposition between topographical and geometric, the planned and the spontaneous, these works represent an ongoing engagement with seeking an equilibrium between order and chaos, and raise personal questions about longing and belonging.

The source is the local Dagsturhytta; day trip cabins which are dotted around the Sogn og Fjordane region in Norway. The repeated structures provide shelter from the weather and sit proudly within the landscape, bringing a sense of protection and familiarity to each place.

Nestled within the landscape of the western fjords of Norway, these day trip cabins are about 15 square meters and offer a place of shelter. All the municipalities in the former Sogn og Fjordane have been given a ‘dagsturhytta’.

Where my inner and outer worlds collide. The duality of longing and belonging. The organic and geometric. Blurring of boundaries between internal and external. A refuge. When man and nature work together. Co-existence.
