Frederiksborg Castle in the Danish town Hillerød is where my grandparents lived and worked throughout my childhood as cleaners. Therefore, I have a very personal and profound relation to the rooms of the castle, which are decorated with ‘exotic’ paintings and furnitures, as seen through my childeyes.

I revisited the castle as adult, and addressed the experience of visiting a very familiar place in this series of paintings, seeking to create an atmosphere and spirit of the overwhelming feeling it was to move around the rooms being a child. It was both very fasinating allowing my imagination to run freely, as well as terrifying. What if all the people in the paintings became alive, or the furnitures started to walk around? I therefore went to the safe place behind my grandmothers skirt while she was sweeping the floors. My paintings therefore became about memory, using color and brushmarks as colorful ghosts from the past.
