The exhibition presents drawings that address our living conditions and freedom to choose. It is part of the the Drawing Triennial organised by Tegnerforbundet (the Norwegian Drawing Center).
The exhibition shows a selection of Erik Werenskiold’s illustrations for Jonas Lie’s novel Familien på Gilje (The Family at Gilje), together with new works by two Norwegian contemporary artists: Hanne Lydia Opøien Figenschou and Gelawesh Waledkhani.
The theme of Lie’s book is the freedom, or lack of it, that young people have to determine their own futures. Although written nearly 150 years ago, the novel addresses issues that are still relevant today. In text and drawings, the exhibition explores interpretations of this theme across time and cultures, illuminating the idea that what is true of others can also be true of oneself.
