À la folie

Art historical references are a constant in my practice. My interest in visual culture is wide, both for what is happening in my own time and in  the past. Sometimes a particular movement or artist will 'grab' me, as in the case of outsider artist Aloïse Corbaz (Switzerland 1886-1964).

The largest collection of Corbaz's work is held by the Collection l'Art Brut in Lausanne. I had the privilege of visiting the archive to see the work in person and interview experts in 2022. I have since been writing and making work in response to her practice, fate and of course her striking art work.

The project is resulting in both material and written content most of which is yet to be exhibited/ published.

The project has so far received support from Region Västernorrland and KC Nord.
