I wish to collect. Different things that speak to me. To collect artefacts and naturally occurring phenomena, from a landscape in constant movement. «To Behold» is a project that is based on my own urge to collect, order, contain and/or display. My intention for this work was to attempt a beholding of a landscape, or small fragments of it, by creating a dialogue between the collected and the made, the landscape and myself. Discovering how the collected and made relate to each other, long for each other or invite others in. A large family of structures have grown out from this projects, 24 in total. The first 22 of them made in a 1:1 scale relates to the objects inside. Still the small structures invite the human inside to behold trough transparent surfaces and openings in the structures. The making of the structures became an acting with the landscape fragments. Discovering myself as a collector and as a maker of containers. Discovering the same landscape again and again in the processing of the collected. Two of the structures relate to a larger scale, inviting the previous structures inside. Structures that are large enough for humans to visit as well as containing what is significantly insignificant. Structures that could allow the collected landscape fragments to travel further, as well as allowing the human to rest inside, just like the objects in the smaller structures. Beholding my own collection finding a home in the made, the simple structures tell of complex architectural issues explored in a number of spaces, containers or beholders. I view the process of collecting, ordering and displaying as ongoing and expanding in many directions. The work consists of fragments of a landscape, and fragments of time, in time.
