Lars Nørgård, Denmark, 1994

7 min.DK/Experimental

The point of departure when describing an animated film in the characteristic style of Lars Nørgård is no doubt his painted works. The art of Lars Nørgård is figurative, this is where the great continuity in his work is to be found. Lars Nørgård uses the narrative, recognizable figure, as the medium whereby meaning can be organized. The paintings of Lars Nørgård have their own logic: as such they do not attempt a representation of reality, but rather aim at creating a universe whose humurous distance and artistic energy play tricks with our usual way of seeing the world Lars Nørgård's art is built on an alphabet of recurring elements, which come to the clearest expression in his drawings. Here, and in the film, the brittleness and lightness of the drawn line brings the expression close to written language.
