The first monograph of one of Norway's most important contemporary artists to be published in English. The work of the Norwegian artist Marianne Heske falls outside conventional categories of art. A 1971 visit to Marche aux Puces near the Porte de Montreuil in Paris would prove important for the artist. There, she found a box of papier-mache doll heads with a look reflecting the glamour of early-twentieth-century film stars. These were to become an important metaphor in her artistic development. Heske soon began to create works that involved the dollsassemblages, photographs, videos, and graphic worksand dolls became a central part of her oeuvre. Includes contributions by leading Norwegian art and literary critics such as Jon Fosse, Ken Friedman, and Frode Helland.
