Last week of Eyes as Big as Plates at FINNO

Since 12th January Hallvar, Astrid, Torleif, Paul, Agnes, Marta & Bengt have been hanging out at FINNO. On Saturday they climb down and into their polystyrene and cardboard homes until Eyes as Big as Plates move on to KIASMA in June.

Thanks to everyone who came to see our favourite group of senior supermodels and welcome to those of you who are fashionably late this week!

Things you only do once. (& welcome to exhibition opening 12.01.12)

Things you only do once. Travel to London and back in a day without an assistant to pick up framed exhibition prints. Attempt to move about by foot or public transport in central London with your framed darlings. Attempt to convince airport security that the framed darlings aren’t too big for their x-ray machine. Attempt to stop them from slicing up the boxes and manually check for liquid bomb material hidden in between your darlings. Attempt to help out wrapping them up again. Walk on ice whilst carrying the framed darlings to your flat after a day filled with above-mentioned happenings, especially if your flat is situated on 4th floor.

(The boxes have not yet been opened. But if it all goes as smooth as 06.01.2012, you are all welcome to the exhibition opening of Eyes as Big as Plates at the Finnish-Norwegian Culture Institute, Thursday 12.01.2012)

Førjulslesning med mormor

Om man sneier forbi en Narvesen i disse adventstider og leiter litt langs magasinreolene, kan det tenkes at man finner et lite utvalg fine saker om både mormorer, morratryner og rabarbrahuldraer.

FOTOGRAFI byr på en meget hyggelig anmeldelse av Mormormonologene, KUNST skriver om både mormor og Karo nysgjerrigper, og sannelig tror jeg visst det har lurt seg inn en liten mormorreportasje i Norsk Ukeblad også.  For de som vil sniktitte i KUNST, klikk klikk klikk til side 54…Mormor til folket og gledelig førjulslesning.
