Library Shelf Location 18.BIGU
Publication Date 2002
Description 'The pictures speak of both a homecoming and a leave-taking. The public is able to witness both an artistic departure and a new path sought by the artist. To start with the latter, that is to say the leave-taking: throughout the 1990s Bigum consistently used one figure, a little cloaked man, ART - to personify the concept of art. These are his last pictures involving ART. The figure, with a scythe over his shoulder and with his large nose sticking out from under the monkĀ“s hood, has served as our guide from one picture to another. Art has taken us through a universe of its own, either to offer us new experiences or to wield the scythe once more.' Taken from http://www.martinbigum.dk
