Hauge, Kari Adora
Installation and graphics

The idea behind the figure installation is from the book “Villette” by Charlotte Brontë. The installation is about Lucy Snowe’s life. A story about an inner fantasy life as a necessary survival strategy. The installation is a tribute to imagination as a resource and survival strategy. This is an installation of illuminated paper figures that shed shadows on a backdrop, a kind of shadow theater. A tale of adventure and magic.

I use animals as symbols, as expressions of what I want to tell. See “Save the planet”, where I use birds as a symbol of conservation of the earth. The birds and animals are something we must preserve, otherwise people are the next who can not live on our planet.
I work with lithography, drawing and paper figures.

There will be a joint exhibition of the artists at Sagene Kunstsmie.

The installation, the adventure room, will be displayed in connection with the public exhibition. It will be shown in my studio as I am right at the showroom. I want to show the adventure room, the installation: “Lucy Snowe, the world of thought”. The figure Lucy Snowe is taken from the book “Villette” by Charlotte Brontë. And shows her inner fantasy that she needs to survive in a hard world. This is an installation of illuminated paper figures that shed shadows on a backdrop, a kind of shadow theater. A tale of adventure and magic. This is something that is suitable for children and school classes.
