I denna installation använder jag ordet liminal för att beteckna en zon där du går från ett psykologiskt tillstånd till ett annat, och en mellanposition där båda samexisterar. I en arkitektonisk konstruktion med olika material, bilder och föremål bjuder jag in besökaren att röra sig runt och uppleva hur hon bygger upp en tolkning genom sin egen aktivitet.


Going from one state to another

In this istallation work, I use the word liminal as denoting a zone where you go from one psychological state to another, and an intermediate position where both coexist. Specifically, on the one hand, a condition characterized by routine rationality and efficiency on the other, a rarer condition to feel awake, open, participatory and vibrant.

This type of liminality is something I already touched upon in another project 'diaries'(ongoing since 3 years); in which I make one picture every day without any restrictions other than the size of paper used.
Many of the images have a "liminal" character. That is to say: an ambivalent pictorial whole built upon incoherent picture elements which gives an uncertain basis for interpretation. I find these images simultaneously disenchanted and incomprehensible; generic and implausible, scary and hopeful.

Within the framework of our project 'Liminal' I will use some of these images as a starting point for a spatial investigation. By placing them in an architectural context I want to find a way to invite the spectator to experience different readings by moving around the sculpture. A liminal experience.
