“In many ways Capacete was an opening chapter to a series of visits to the country. I have been coming back every winter since, developing different projects around themes of nature and corruption in the north east region of Brazil. I did a solo show titled ‘Condominium’ at Akershus Kunstsenter in Norway in 2015 where I exhibited a project looking at massive holiday apartment complexes, built for Norwegians, close to Natal that came to a halt due to financial crisis and a money laundring scandal. At the moment I’m working on an artist book that connects images from trips to Brazil. It will be a lyrical documentary of a region, where contemporary ruins destroyed by financial crisis and corruption are combined with images of landscapes and of hallucinatory nature. It will also include a CD of sound recordings.”
