Carmen variations & other passions

Carmen variations & other passions

The exhibition “Carmen variations & other passions” was seen by a lot of people in Grimstad during the summer 2013 and became the so far most obvious success in the artists career.

Another road has been entered this fall. Arild is going to the fjords and mountains of Nordmøre where he was born and brought up. He will try to follow in the footsteps of Edvard Bræin, a composer and folk tone collector of the early 20th century. He will see the places Bræin visited during the years of 1928 – 1938 and interpretate this “roadmovie” in drawing, paintings and photo. He will be collaborating with the wonderful young singer Hilde Norbakken, born in the  island, Smøla of Nordmøre, like Arild Andresen. She has  the same fascination for the folk tones of the region and will make her own interpretations.The final presentation of the work will be, not an exhibition, not a concert, but a multi-art event in 2015.
