About Ornament and Care

The reliefs were created during a period of mourning and are based on studies of sepulchral monuments. In her studies, the artist insists on both love and the vast potential inherent in grief and loss. Through the work with the reliefs Lunden, contemplates the body. Inspired by the body, its intuitive movements and its constant process of caring, the works create a meaningful bond between nature, the self and disease. The disease gives rise to a space somewhere between life and death. Analysis is set aside and an intuitive understanding and sense of cohesion comes to the fore. In addition to the reliefs, Ornament and Care also features a performance, which was created alongside the artist’s work on the reliefs. At Rønnebæksholm, the performance was a combination of dance and a caring ritual. The performance was created in collaboration with choreographer Louise Midjord.
