No Place, Good Place

"No Place, Good Place: a study on the shape of Utopia," paper machete, 2018

In his book Utopia (1516), Sir Thomas More gives a very specific description of what he thinks the island of Utopia would look like. After More, a number of artist and illustrators tried to visualize this island, yet they consistently failed to match their images to the island described by More.

Embracing the impossibility of illustrating the island of Utopia "No Place, Good Place" is a project that seeks the shape of Utopia within the existing spaces that linger on the threshold of place/non-place.

This work exhibited at Tutti Frutti Biennale, Sikås Art Center Sweden.
