Sensation

Værkerne er en reflektion over natur og sæbe. Kort før krigen i Syrien, boede jeg i en sæbegade i Aleppo. Jeg opdagede at ren natursæbe har været fremstillet i mindst 5000 år. Idag skylles globalt enorme mængder af  "plastik" sæbe med tilsætningsstoffer ud i naturen hver dag. Dette i form af tøjvask, opvaskemaskiner, brusebad samt kantiner og fabrikker. Sæbefamilierne i Syrien er blevet fordrevet fra deres sæbegårde, og afskåret fra at syde verdens velnok fineste sæber af olivenolie og laurbærolie.Det er tankevækkende at et helt land overvejende har været istand til at bruge sæbe uden tilsætningsstoffer så langt op i vores tid..
