The subject of Peer Gynt is relevant as a metaphor of people today who have lost connection with their inner core. With Me, Peer Gynt, we create an inner journey. An eternal journey in which we seek for own identities. The cynicism towards nothingness is not the core of the tale in Me, Peer Gynt. I rather wanted to understand this egoistic and ordinal man through the eyes of his mother Åse and his fiancée Solveig, two women who have given unconditional love and deep recognition to him.

The installation of ‘Me, Peer Gynt’ divides the inner and outside of the world, it reflects one’s imagination, creates spatial leap and stands for no-lineal time lines.
