Lars Morell & Rune Elgaard
"Epilogues" brings together the Norwegian artist Lars Morell (1980) and the Danish artist Rune Elgaard (1980) whose works each in their own way have the book, the letter and the picture as subject and topic.
The title therefore refers to a literary sphere. "Epilogue" goes back to the ancient drama in which the Greek word epilogos means "a finishing speech." Throughout history epilogues appear in many forms in plays and literary works, often as a speech to the audience containing a moral after the act has taken place. In more recent works epilogues are more like open statements, a kind of registration of details which may open and extend the work as much as it completes it.
Morell and Elgaard´s exhibition belongs to the latter category.
It is up to us as viewers to decipher the prior action which the epilogues of the exhibition unfold.
Exhibition period: 31.10.2014 - 29.11.2014
