‘Restriction’ is an online exhibition of miniature pieces of art inspired by restrictions of the pandemic.
This exhibition is displayed in a set of old printer’s letterpress drawers, with the drawers’ tiny compartments providing a stimulus for the exhibiting artists.
Inspired by the restrictions many of us have experienced due to Covid-19, more than 200 artists, from around the globe, have produced work for the show, resulting in over 1000 pieces of miniature artworks.
The new works will be exhibited at Clayhill Arts, Bridgwater, Somerset and showcased online via livestream video with the help of Ignite Somerset.
GRØÐING – RECOVERY
Pop-up exhibition at Bjórkovin, Tórshavn
For this exhibition Pinkudreyma.welt teamed up with Bjørg List for a shared show around different forms, experiences and processes of recovery.
I presented a series of 4 dreamworlds, inspired by the topic.
Viđgerđ - Therapy
Stuđul - Support
Afturfall - Relapse (sold)
Frávenjing - Withdrawal
This exhibition aims to bring different approaches from a range of cultures together under a common theme. Not only that, the exhibition has the aim to raise money for @bluedragonchildren.

Theresa is a German creative, identifying as non-binary, who after spending ten years in the noisy party-metropolis Berlin moved to an archipelago in the centre of the North Atlantic. Exchanging the dirty streets of Germany’s biggest city with the wild, untamed nature of the Faroe Islands. Art she produces under the name of Pinkudreyma.welt are a tool of recovery for her as well as for coping with anxiety. Works were exhibited in 2021 in Tórshavn (FO), Hanoi (VN) and Bridgwater (UK).

After struggling again with the cravings and urges of alcohol addiction during Lockdown, I created @pinkudreyma.welt in July 2020 to help me deal with the stresses of ongoing recovery.
The name is a fusion of Faroese and German. It means little dream world. My artworks are an invitation to everyone looking at them, to loose themselves in a little daydream.
