Endangered

A new exhibition by Lise Melhorn-Boe in the Gallery II Main Space. 

For many years we humans have been discovering, inventing and introducing new materials, technologies and products into our environment. Many of them are amazing, useful and life-enhancing, but many of them are also toxic or hazardous to our health. Endangered is an exhibition consisting of a series of artist's books which examine various aspects of our lives -- where and how we live, what we eat, what we get rid of, how we bring up our children. Using a light-hearted visual esthetic, books such as Home Sweet Home and What's for Dinner? bring difficult issues to our attention. References to children's books, pop-ups, attractive colours, appealing fabrics and familiar objects, such as diapers and babies' onesies, paper dolls and doll houses, are the sugar-coating for a nasty pill to swallow.
