Sweden, b. 1982
Exhibition: 21-27 May
In this long-term photographic project, I (re)approach my own past experiences of being a handball athlete and devoting myself to the sport at a crucial transitional stage between child and adulthood.
The title Girl Unboxed refers to this revisitation today as an artist. What would be made of the silent violence in a common sport, which is generally recognised as friendly and timid? The physical and psychological pressure was anything but negligible. As my participation coincided with my being in a precarious transitional state between child and adulthood, the impact was all the greater. As an artist today, I visualise situations and moments which ideally convey the stakes.
