The artist in the family

In my family there are a handful of people with artistic talents. My cousin Hanne is the only one to make it all the way to being an artist. Last week she opened her first exhibition! It's at Gallery Soft in Oslo. I knew it would be good, and it was actually fantastic! I am the happy owner of several of her drawings and paintings (made on her own hand made paper).

Her work is an animation based on her larger work called the "Insel Freyhaus’ archive". It's all about information and how collect information and use it. The marionette, drawings and paper backdrops are all made by her and make a dreamy setting. The message is philosophical, at the same time as it has a good story and a great character in the old archivist (the picture on the left). On top of the more philosophical thinking of the archivist, there a lot of facts given about spiders and their daily life that put's a perspective on any routine life.

The exhibition is called "Morphology in the Morning". Needless to say I am very proud of Hanne!
