I felt the constant presence of the Viking heritage in the islander’s faces, the spell of the Northern light, the marks
of the rain and the wind constantly battering the land.
Lost in the vast fjords of southern Norway, the tiny island of Halsnoy is crisscrossed by slim roads and dirt tracks.
My mind was a mix of dream figures of the Norwegian folktales and of the recent images of the shooting tragedy
that had taken place on the island of Utoeya.
All of this resonates in my “Haslnoy Tales”.
“Halsnoy Tales” was created in September 2011 during an artist residency on the island of Halsnoy, Norway.
