In early 2020 I spent time in New Zeeland/Aotearoa as an Artist in Residence at Dunedin School of Art.
Very sudden, middle of March, I had to return to Sweden. From the time on the island, with inspiring conversations, endless walking, and hands-on making my return luggage contained not just things but also notes, memories and thoughts. There were also boxes with samples, sketches, stones, dried flowers and gifts. These treasure boxes and their contents became part of a reference library I used for the coming time in my studio.
