My Four Guardian Angels

gloves & the blue series

The ancient use of amulets as a metaphysical

protection against various dangers (evil eye, demons,

hate etc.) is shifted into our post-modern society and

our current fears. One of the main fears in our ×´fear

society×´, is the fear of the “other”, the different,

the immigrant, the

foreigner - the Alien. This body of work comments on

the way we perceive the "other" and put an

emphasis on our need to feel protected. As a result,

the visual language of the blue series consists of

forms resembling alien-creatures, protective

elements and materials related to and connected

with providing safety.
