Henrik Olai
Kaarstein
@ T293
— 

Under the
sheen of
commitment
less admirable
drives always
scheme.

The idea: 
In his 4th
solo exhibition 
at T293, Olai
Kaarstein

evokes pending
transgressions 
to propose
affinity in a
group of images
spanning from
intimate photos
of friends
and lovers,
to cinematic
variations on
the theme
“forbidden love”
and global politics. 

Materials:
Charcoal,
soft pastels,
oil pastels and 
acrylic paint
on inkjet print
&
Mixed media
on fabric
and paper.
