And your prayers, they break the sky in two
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien

(David Bowie)

At the movies, even period pieces give away when they were made. However meticulous the construction of a historical scene (or for that matter a futuristic one), the look of the thing is locked into the moment of its making, and not the one it is describing. It’s always about the present negotiating a past.

Eating With Our Eyes, a text about the exhibition The Eaters

When I was at culinary school and we were boiling meat stock in gigantic pots, something I had never seen or done before, we would chuck in all the leftovers that weren’t garbage: vegetable peel, meat, bones, tendons from cleaning a steak, and any other tasty morsels that could add flavour to the ever-simmering pot that would sometimes cook for days. Nothing was wasted, and I really liked that process.

Äta med ögonen, en text om utställningen The Eaters

När jag gick på restaurangskolan kokade vi köttbuljong i stora grytor, något jag varken hade sett eller gjort tidigare. Då slängde man ner det som blev över men som inte var skräp: grönsaksspill, kött, ben, och senor efter man parerat en stek, och annat smått och gott som kunde ge smak till den ständigt småputtrande grytan som ibland stod på i flera dagar. Inget fick förspillas, och jag gillade den processen väldigt mycket.

Lars Arrhenius, Specta, Copenhagen, Denmark

It is with great pleasure SPECTA presents a new solo show by the Swedish artist Lars Arrhenius. With an exceptionally multi-disciplinary oevre, counting a.o. animation, drawing, television, music, scenography and boardgames, Arrhenius has once again taken on a new media, as the exhibition consists of a brand new series of paper cuts, inspired by the Danish writer H. C. Andersen.
