The Cat project

In my earlier works, pets have been connected to the depiction of personal life. This cat project includes several exhibitions. The cat appears in every work. The cat is of course a significant creature in history and in the present, but above all I deal with human experiences, attitudes, mythologies and even politics.

The project includes oil paintings, a cartoon story and a wood sculpture installation.
Cats are bystanders and protagonists in the works. In the paintings, cat figures bear witness to human contradictions. Alongside the drawings, I wrote stories about my own life and the changes in the world. The installation features a shamanic creature in a closet and a glass bottle. The bottle contains a memory of our late cat: cat poop.
