WALLS HAVE A LANGUAGE 
FOR THE MA1 GROUP SHOW I CAN CARRY PEOPLE AROUND, BERGEN KJØTT (NO) 2023
Floor plan, text
 
In may, my classmates unfolded together in Bergen Kjøtt, under the title ‘’I can carry people around’’. Then they folded again, on paper, on the map I made for them.

To be continued starts with paper – a space to draw, paint, print. Molded or assembled it gets bigger and settles in space. Sculpture meets drawing and books pretend to be sculptures. From the same starting point, the white sheet can become almost anything, in a back and forth between gestures, symbols, landscapes… From a language to an other, from an idea to a colour: translation on A4 sheets. Shapes and words are light and modular – on the wall / the corner / the floor – they unfold, and then disappear in pockets.
To be continued is a landscape in permanent deconstruction, a drawing in a notebook, a poem to unfold.

During the first lockdown, I found myself back at my parents place, in my teenager room. Three white walls, a pink wall, a window, a desk, a bed, a night table, a frame and a few objects, became my landscape for almost two months. The room became drawing, with the help of a stack of A4 sheets, and a few soft yellow pastels.
