How are memories born? Me, I sometimes find myself thinking I will remember a moment forever - until I realize I have forgotten it. Some memories are difficult to capture and seem to evade us, others cannot be avoided. Our recollections are highly personal; another person often remembers the same thing differently or has an entirely opposite recollection from out own. Memories can also change as time passes.

For this exhibition at Galleria Heino I have collected a range of keepsakes, my own and those of others. At flea markets, I discovered old photographs that were the forgotten memories of other people. These images were the starting point for the "Wasted memories" series. My material in that series is white satin with the images printed in white, and the images shift from negative to positive as the viewer moves in front of the work.

The saying "Every cloud has a silver lining" gave rise to the second theme of the exhibition. I printed pictures of cloudy days on a silver material. Even though the saying is a hackneyed cliché, I subscribe to the underlying wisdom. Ultimately, there is a silver lining even in the greatest of adversity.
