Elin Magnusson

The artist places blankets on the snowy ground, until it is covered.

When all information is relative and nothing is right or wrong, there is a need to create order out of chaos. In a grid pattern of warming blankets, a carpet of categories and order take form, of thoughtfulness and comfort. It is an attempt to replace a pattern with another and to do better, an attempt to do good, but perhaps mostly to take away a disturbing element. Guilt, Struggle and Love are part of the trilogy All Good Things Go by Three.
