Fraud Medium – Lars Morell at Norske Grafikere, Oslo

18 February 2013

Norwegian photographer Lars Morell recently worked with Metro to produce the images for his latest exhibition, Fraud Medium, printing a series of large-scale (100cm x 150cm) black and white silver gelatin prints.

The exhibition title refers to the ambiguities reproduced in the images.  He investigates the experiences we have when looking at an image and questions the processes in which technology can be used to deceive or even seduce the viewer.  
Inspired by illusionists and beat poets, prominent in the 1950s, Morell experimented with various techniques until he settled on the idea of using analogue silver gelatin printing. Oversized prints have been used to present short, enigmatic texts projected into smoke, drawing similarities between the artist and magician or illusionist, in their quest for ‘the ability to deceive the public.’

Morell who lives and works in Oslo and Paris has had several solo exhibitions in recent years. He has this year also received the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation's Grant, New York. His next solo exhibition opens at Palais de Tokyo in Paris February 27th  - April 4th.

Exhibition dates: 31th January - 24th February
Opening times: Monday - Friday: 10:00 – 5:00, Saturday – Sunday: 12:00 - 4:00
