In 'To accept theirs, to make it mine, to wish it for myself', Bugge takes as her starting point the idea that touch and the traces left by human bodies are a form of linguistic expression. Working in collaboration with inmates, Bugge sought out, and made casts of, physical traces left by former inmates: worn or vandalised surfaces and marks scratched into the walls. These casts were then made into positive or negative bronze casts that were reinserted into the buildings. This work investigates past interactions between human bodies and the surfaces in the prisons, and the traces left behind.
