PhD project: The Other Wild: Touching Art as Confrontation
The Other Wild sets out to address systems of control and internalized normative structures that harness and govern dualisms like life and non-life, humanness and wildness, by taking conversation and touch as a starting point in the making of artworks.

The artworks springs from the collective work and collaboration with rocks, buildings and people of the former Geological museum in Oslo and the crowd of former and present inmates, buildings and employees in the three high security prisons of Oslo, Ullersmo and Eidsberg, as well as other artists and supervisors.

The research has manifested in artworks presented to the evaluation- comittee in two venues; the exhibition The Other Wild in the Intercultural museum in Oslo, and the permanent artwork To Accept Theirs, To Make It Mine, To Wish It For Myself, installed in the high security prisons of Ullersmo and Eidsberg. The book To Accept Theirs, To Make It Mine, To Wish It For Myself carries a guide to the works in the prison, and serves as part of the reflective work together with a reflective text and a compilation of conversations.
