Dust Catches Light is the account of Marie Sjøvolds own pregnancy, a story of trying to adapt to a new situation within a known environment and where roles and relationships constantly shift. The project ‘Dust Catches Light’ evolved upon Sjøvolds return to Norway in 2008, following a long period abroad. Included in this publication is a DVD featuring two films: ‘While We Were Sleeping’ and ‘Until It’s Found’.

About the Artist
Marie Sjøvold’s art explores timeless themes such as maternity, family, and sleep. We live at a time when motherhood is subject to constant discussion and focus, and many women feel pressured to share their maternal bliss on social media. Although the home, the family, and motherhood are all visible elements in society, a deeper reflection on such essential frameworks of everyday life is often lacking.
