A lot of art and visual crafts are based on appropriating things. 

– Lazaro HernandezIMG_2421I went with Norwegian Crafts to the Révélations Fine Craft and Creation Fair at the Grand Palais in Paris, France, now three weeks ago. I was on crutches so didn’t get as many photos and as good as I like. Anyway, together with the other nordic countries, Norwegian Crafts had a huge stand with 25 different art pieces. The concept was the game of whispers, where there was one curator for each country and they took turns picking out a piece of work from their country. The curators only got the picture of what the previous curator had chosen, and had to find another pieced somehow based on that first work.  IMG_2455 IMG_2429Object #5: Scarab by OrriFinn (Iceland) IMG_2438 Object #1: DIY Place # 1: Bali by Kjersti Lande (Norway)IMG_2428Object # 22: Anarkistens Perlering by Trine Trier (Denmark) IMG_2512sSome of the organizers from the different countries.

Paris is always a good idea.

– Audrey HepburnSkjermbilde 2015-09-25 kl. 15.40.42I went to Paris with work, a fine craft organisation showing at the Révélations fine craft and creation fair at the Grand Palais. My task was to photograph the events, but I had ended up on crutches just a few days before, so I had to pass on the task to one of the others while I mainly sat watching. Mostly what I got to see of Paris was through the window of a taxi. IMG_6469IMG_6472 copy IMG_6503 copy IMG_6501 IMG_6476 copy IMG_6531 copy IMG_6532 copy IMG_6492 copy
