The Ugly Troll and The Stupid Human
With an exceptionally multi-disciplinary oevre, counting a.o. animation, drawing, television, music, scenography and boardgames, Arrhenius has once again taken on a new media, as the exhibition consists of a brand new series of paper cuts, inspired by the Danish writer H. C. Andersen.
Lars Arrhenius has built both the paper cuts and the fairytale, with characters which belong to the genre, just as we know it from H.C. Andersen - this is how it begins..... As the story and the paper cuts unfold, we get a piece of real history, the history of oil. From when we get a hold on it, and discover its qualities, the value, that the oil gets and creates - and finally the future it represents. It is a story which is classic Lars Arrhenius, always politically entertaining, dark, incredibly well made - and never without edge.
The exhibition will present an installation of 12 paper cuts which all together form the story about The Ugly Troll and The Stupid Human, a story written by Lars Arrhenius. Furthermore there will be some individual paper cuts.
