artist statement

to louise haugaard jørgensen letting her work with drawing, sculpture, installation, performance and language overlap and interfertilise is a way to approach the physical manifestations of the unknown. she explores how our belief systems and habits of thought effect the way we make sense of the sensory impressions that constantly overrun us. louise haugaard jørgensen explores the little shifts and differences that make holes in our understandings of things, and looks for the transformative potential of imagination and memory in order to approach an alternative form of knowledge production. she finds a great interest in things, because they have a different understanding of self than the rest of us – they fall apart, dissolve and willingly merge with each other to create new things. It is like they know that there is no such thing as a surface, only the outermost internals.
