- a special publication bringing together three unique
artists who have throughout their careers established a connection to and with the work of Edvard Munch. In a specially commissioned essay for this publication Charles Danby writes:
It is perhaps enough to say that beyond
international recognition and notoriety there are aspects of a creative mind that are retained nationally, through a collective
consciousness, and passed on generationally in a manner akin to oral tradition. Recognition, in this sense of national will towards a figure of cultural standing, denotes ownership as well as care and nurture, and this governance resides in the heart of a nation, a city, a town and a family.
What remains open is the mechanism by which Munch will continue to permeate and evolve within collective national consciousness through successive generations of Norwegian artists. For there is perhaps an aspect of psyche intrinsic to a creative mind that is retained and nurtured nationally outside of its known celebrity, and while this is the case there will always be spaces through which stories ‘of’ Munch, like those of black metal and folk tales, will continue to be told.

The bookwork entitled ‘Moon’ is a representation of Nina Hove's recent photographic work, which explores the complexity and seeming randomness of the everyday and the vernacular whilst rejecting any presupposed narrative structure, allowing a form of visual poetry to take hold of the viewer.
It is a personal, diaristic examination of fragmentary personal experiences brought together within the context of a book. This work examines the relationships and interactions that images have with each other and in relation to their audience, whilst giving importance to an experiential value within the work that unifies the images into a whole both for the artist herself as well as the audience. Nina Hove is bringing together these fragmentary experiences, rather than seeing them as singular moments, as a sensitive and provocative engagement with the world at large.
