Abjection

I seek to visualize beauty in abjection and abjection in beauty. When the abject becomes beautiful, the predictable loosens its grip and the world opens = new perspectives, creative inspiration.

“Abjection is a concept in critical theory referring to becoming cast off and separated from norms and rules, especially on the scale of society and morality, (Wikipedia)

THE ABJECT, abjection (Kristeva): Our reaction (horror, vomit) to a threatened breakdown in meaning caused by the loss of the distinction between subject and object or between self and other, (https://cla.purdue.edu/academic)

I visualize through choreography, mapping, film and model building.

I am a dancer and choreographer from The Danish National School of Performing Arts and has since 1994 worked freelance in several productions in Denmark and abroad.

From 2001-07 I was active in the performance group of the gender political association dunst. In 2018 I wrote the article dunst 2001-07 Aesthetics of Abjection published in Peripeti, a magazine for dramaturgical studies.

In 2014 I became a landscape architect (cand.hort.arch) specialising in relations between movement, space and time.

Since 2015 I have worked as arts- and architectural educator. In 2020 I was coauthor of the article It’s all about art and in 2021 A Microtopia of Arts Education.
