In her photographic series Seabound (2018-2019) Elina Brotherus uses the Norwegian city of Kristiansand as a landscape to play with the process of making art. She photographs herself across the vast coastline at different times of the day, showcasing the fantastical elements of a Nordic "eternal sunshine” as well as snow and cloudier skies draped in fog, adding a mystical aspect. Inspired by the Fluxus movement of the 1960s and 1970s, Brotherus emphasizes her artistic process; Using a method from performance artist Kurt Johannessen, she carries dozens of miniature books filled with øvingar, or exercises, that guide her trip around Norway and add a component of spontaneity. Seabound demonstrates incredible self-reflection of the slowness of time and the slowness of the artistic process. As Brotherus says, "For art to happen, the artist only needs time and a place”.
