One woman – 13 men (2005)

Artist book, Black and white, 84 pages, A3

> Selected pages og groups

A headline in a Norwegian paper (Én kvinne – 13 menn / One woman – 13 men) became the starting point for this project, where descriptions of persons were sampled from papers and magazines, and grouped according to all kind of themes in the same ratio as the title indicates, 124 groups in total.

 

It was released as a an A3-publication with press-clippings taped on a black background, mimicking the aestetics of a scrap-book.

 

For a group show in 2013, celebrating the 100 year anniversary for womans right to vote, I made an installation based on the material collected for this project. See Outtakes
