Caroline (Maria Gripe) – seeing beyond reality
A fictional character created by Maria Gripe in her “Skuggserien” book series, including Skuggan över stenbänken (“The Shadow on the Stone Bench”) and more. Caroline questions her own “true” self and goes in and out of various roles. At the age of 11, Dovsten was deeply influenced by Caroline, whose character still inspires her in her artistic practice to see beyond a reality that is far too conformist and serious.
