Om kjaerlighet

Om kjærlighet.
Denne videoen laget jeg fordi et av de vanskeligste temaene i kunsten og livet er kjærlighet. Jeg diskuterer og har mange synspunkter om hva og hvordan. 6 minutter.© Helene Torp, All rights reserved. Enjoy! This is only in Norwegian language for the moment.

Video animation,  Oslo Central station, Helene Torp 2008
Friends (Venner) is a video animation consisting of simple drawings
and short everyday messages, where the content and form appear as a wonderful mix of public and private life. The artist examines how the abbreviated language of texts, Facebook and advertising infiltrates other communication. “Friends” walks a tightrope between
humour and an underlying serious message. In a world where a wrong keystroke can broadcast the most intimate details it is easy for the results to become confusing. The film is clever, playful and accessible. From the jury statmente. Curated by Rom for kunst
