Frå Tindfjell til Kyoto, 2002
Series of 24 works two-dimensional pictures using maps, signs and traditional paper techniques
The Frå Tindfjell til Kyoto -series was made twenty years ago, and was part of the From Tindfjell to Kyoto, 2002 at the Trondheim Museum of Art. Using maps and signs, the artist tried to give a visual form to the sacred aspect of life. In many ways they gathered the threads from her previous works, both in terms of form and content, and they pointed to the future.
