The Birdcather project is a collaborative work with artist Sookyoung Huh and dealing with birds and obsession. A startingpoint has been the works off Swedish biologist, zoologist and author Sten Berman. His trip to Korea 1935-1937 under Japanese occupation, his collected files for the National Museum of Natural History and his diary entries have served as a backdrop a number of works and exhibition.
A number of works in relation to a tradition of Nordic landscape imagery.

Movie made from performance at Konsthall Mellbyskogen in 2010.
The performance was inspired by a tale of virtuosity. Swedish landscape painter Marcus Larson (1825- 1864) once visiting Johan Ludvig Runeberg in Borgå, Finland made a bet. He was to start and finish a painting during the time of performing the Kreutzer Sonata by Ludvig van Beethoven.
The two series of photographs, Cairo 1974/2001 and Volgograd 1943/2005 presents images from two different wars that I have not witnessed. Instead I travelled to two museums: Volgograd State Panoramic Museum in Volgograd (Stalingrad), Russia and October War Museum in Cairo, Egypt.
Collection of sculpture, photographs, texts, t-shirts, homepage, bronze, 1994 -
This is a continuous collecting since 1994 of a kind of popular sculpture in stone– the stentroll ( swedish for a troll made of stone). The nature of the collector and its motive power was my startingpoint in this project.
Several rare works by the relatively unknown artist Edvin Alm has been donated to the museum. These all 23 pieces are individually different and delicately made and will soon be shown as a part of museum’s new presentation
Photographs and cooperation with hand colourists, 2001 –
Translationworks is a cooperative project together with hand colourists from Egypt. The foundation for the project is a possibility or a suggestion to view hand colouring of black and white photographs as an act of translation. Within this project there are different threads in different series of images. see below
A ten year walk in a burnt down national park. Photographs, text,
In August 1999 a major forestfire ravaged the swedish national parc Tyresta. The rescue operation; including, the army, the navy, the fire-Brigade, the home defence, the police and volunteers; is one of the largest rescue operation in swedish history.
Ten years later I have visited the park over a period of ten years, each time collecting a visual archive of a new born landscape, so to speak. The work also consists of official texts from authorities involved in the rescue operation and the following criminal investigattion.
