BOLTHOLE: a place where a person can escape and hide

The Bolthole series depicts different portraits and embodiments that explore internal dilemmas and the desire to rebuild oneself. The exhibition reflects on my concern with the construction of the self and the ways in which personal identities are formed, constrained, or enhanced during ongoing relationships.

The themes of this exhibition are very diverse; the perpetual metamorphosis of identity, the uncertainty of the individual in modern society, the masquerade played by humanity to achieve social acceptance, the illusory and fleeting sensation of triumph and prestige are all treated-and more.

As a whole, the works form a fictitious social scenario where different roles and idealized identities interrelate with each other and form a narrative unit that goes beyond the real promoting an irrational and dreamlike existence.

The project has been supported by Föreningen Konstsamfundet and Taike.
