Edition of 300, numbered
On the first spread of Else Marie Hagen’s Sider av saken (Sides of the issue) we see the three words of the title, handwritten in pencil and partially erased. The eraser debris is still there, and when we turn the page we see the back of the paper – as if the imprint of the letters was pressed through. But which sides of the issue (and of what issue?) are represented here, in the shape of a sketchbook?
The handling of drawing utensils and other tools, hints of experimentation and pedagogical approaches, persist in Hagen’s work. Children and young people in particular are shaped in accordance with certain parameters. Some vaguely formative, unfinished processes are pictorialized. Conceptual analyses highlight individual components of the images. Our relationship with images – their function as criterion or standard – is ubiquitous. They shape meanings and conceptions of which we are not always conscious.
