The book, titled Old Laughter and Synonyms for Actors, contains texts and photo documentation related to the solo exhibition by Lars Nordby at Rafael Mihaylov in Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria. The book includes extended texts by Kjetil Røed and Hanna Gjelten Hattrem about Lars Nordby’s artistic practice and further explores his notion of identity and theatricality.


“There is a parallel to be drawn with how Nordby formulates his artworks’ relation to the theatre. In Nordby’s ‘stagings’ th- ere is an absence of plotline. Instead we are exposed to settings and objects that lead up to the theatrical moment.”
- Hanna Gjelten Hattrem

“Lars Nordby repeatedly tackles the issue of identity, utilizing conceptual means through the visual form. In his latest contemplation over the abstract boundaries of where the factual – by definition – frontline of identity begins and where, and if, it ends, the viewer is invited to observe a stage, not unlike in a theater, which is absolved of ending or beginning.”
- Emil Stefanov

“We can imagine the theatre as a visual field that can place our role-plays in a location where suppressed aspects of life’s theatricality returns to an experi- ence of “not being able to act the part”, and thereby also a return of the void in the symbolic drama we are usually so wrapped up in.”
- Kjetil Røed

BOOK

85 Booklet 
Radostin Sedevchev, 2016


10x15cm
Digital Print
Paper
200 copies



Heerz Tooya takes 50% commission. The other half goes to Radostin Sedevchev.

“The moments follow each other; nothing lends them the illusion of a content or the appearance of a meaning; they pass; their course is not ours; we contenplate that passage, prisoners of a stupid perception.”  - Emil Cioran

Discarded list with the names of sexual partners, each and everyone left his trace. All of which draw a portrait of the complier. I on the other hand draw them. Every one is embodyed in the name he is remembered with and every portrait is a decompression of the trace of memory. The decompression in this case is synthetic act of extraction of the memory, lead by subjectivity, fantasy and obsession, without any claim of faithfulness to real life events. Memories deprived from meaning, opened for second read and ultimately oblivion.
