"Thanks to Hanstholm Fyr's Støtteforening, Lotte Madsen, KUNSTREFF, local traders and institutions and everyone else involved in helping me achieve my goals during my stay and making this opportunity possible. After five years studying art abroad, it is my wish to contribute to the local community with the knowledge and network I have gained. I would like to establish a new tradition of exhibitions and interventions by national and international, visiting artists working in and around the Hanstholm Fyr.

It is my hope that Hanstholm Lighthouse in the future could become a central meeting point for North Atlantic Arts and Culture as well as the Northern Port to Thy National Park. The suggestion of the Artist Consultation Group is that the site should become 'Det Nordatlantiske Fyrtårn' - an exhibition space, library, cafe and residence permanently. I believe a multifunctional space for the people is the way forward and I will do my utmost to help establish a bright future for the Lighthouse."
