SCULPTURE

AnimArt Performance is the name of my own productions with anthropomorphic characters.  It all began with a flock of birds, created back in 1992.. Since then new animal characters have arrived. Together with actors, dancers and musicians the masks have had an orchestra, mingling in private partys and big museums, modeling for magazines, making ”Tableaux Vivants” at cultural festivals, and right now they are dancing for artistic research… 

Since 1990 I design and create puppets, masks, costumes and set design for theatres and similar events.  Since some years now I also direct my own art performances and do some free artistic research with full masks.

As a set designer for puppet shows I am specialized in the visual illusions and customized constructions that comes with – and is the magic of – puppetry. Very small or very big puppets lives after the same principles.. 

Sometimes I also do  exhibitions in galleries or site specific art-installations. Often with some interactive elements. Not many, but some of my sculptures are for sale as artpieces – if requested.

I teach puppetry and mask design, making and playing technics. In the university of Arts and in private courses around the world. Now in corona-times you can get my courses in mask making and coaching on line.
