VREDENS LUSTGÅRD  -  GARDEN OF WRATH   -   2019


"I want to tell a story about the Vredens lustgård  - Garden of Wrath.

About all the discarded and disregarded species, that didn’t fit into the narrow mold of the garden some call paradise, where Violet is eternally blue and blushing, and Daisy forever is dainty and neat.

 

This story is about the venomous Poison Ivy, the thorny Rose. The promiscuous and powerful Iris. About all the pesky Mushrooms and their queer in-between-ness. (Neither plant nor animal. Female nor male. What are they? To what realm do they belong?)

And about the vicious Venus, who´s brazenly batting her lashes, keeping that deadly flytrap open for anyone vain and ignorant enough to try their luck.

 

They have sprouted from the bad seeds; they are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn’t burn. The are the forbidden fruit germinated from the uncontrolled sowing.

 

This is a story of the loud. The obnoxious. The proud and the bold.
The ones that couldn’t- or wouldn’t - conform.

 

It is a story about femininity, society, science, sexuality, medicine, biology and eugenics.
It is also a story about disobedience, nonconformity and resistance.


This is the story about the weeds in the cracks of the concrete, those whose roots eventually might rupture our entire civilization. This whole man-made world.


You´ve pissed Mother Earth off, and with all her daunting daughters by her side, she´s about to get her revenge.

 

(Is that a threat or a promise...?)"

VREDENS LUSTGÅRD / GARDEN OF WRATH


                                                           

is a body of work that consists of metal and glass sculptural objects, stemming from a mythological tale about repressed organisms striking back at civilization.


It is  a story about the weeds in the cracks of the concrete

joining forces to erupt the whole man-made world in an organic revolution. 


It is a celebration of disobedience, non-conformity and diversity, and a sanctuary where to thrive, and grieve all those uprooted, extinct and lost to us.
