A cosmic and intimate kingdom
“Everything here, whether a part of a routine day or a deluxe vernissage, becomes something extraordinary and special, projecting the visitor into unexpected grotesque and fantastical dimensions; ultimately dragging him into a surrealist, cosmic and intimate kingdom.” – Karen N. Wikstrand
