Bodies That Matter (2018) is a body of work which working title stems from the very book by the philosopher Judith Butler and her writings about gender issues and performativity. The Body and the Matter is here expressed in an abstract way with connotations to both parts of the human body and matter as material form relating to a body in a space, to movement and to interconnection on various levels. In addition the pictures have a certain closeness to both eastern mysticism and quantum physics.
The single pictures are meant to be installed as an organic and variable group according to a specific space. The artworks are a combination of acrylic painting and silk embroidery in Japanese sashiko technique on unprimed canvas. Picture dimensions are 60 x 60 cm and 40 x 40 cm.
