In the series “The Space Between” I question the gender roles found in today’s society. A large part of the driving force behind this project is those conflicts on gender roles I witness when individuals are subjected to contradicting demands and expectations. To show such conflicts I have placed the woman as a carrier of dualistic expectations, where she becomes a maladjusted creature in surroundings characterized by both masculinity and antiquity.
The series also brings a deeper perspective level, where she represents repressed or subconscious memories of a past, coming to the conscious surface as distorted fragments. As repressed memories, either my own or as a cultural heritage, the women appear as something supernatural or surreal.
