LOVE, FROM HATE – 12 letters about visible and invisible pain

 

I will visit 12 places in the city where I have met anxiety in various ways. I have written a letter to the 12 places. The letters are left in various ways in the 12 places and can subsequently be read and found by all.

 

A letter has an intimacy over it. It has a lived history in the dark as well. Now that story gets light. Only this way it can be released and I myself can move on. I call it “Love, from hate – an exchange of letters for better or worse.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

I always work with my own history as a starting point. Anxiety, violence, rape, hatred and self-hatred have been part of my work, whether as a writer, playwright, screenwriter, or visual artist.

The picture of me is after an attack on me near Frihedsstøtten on Vesterbrogade the night between Saturday and Sunday, February 1, 2009.
