The Street
Lars Arrhenius

The Street is an animation that shows the life in a block during 24 hours. Our daily routines are presented like the mechanics in a speeded up cuckoo clock. Each person contributes like a cog in a machinery, together making this tragic-comic musical docusoap running. The film is produced by CGAC, the art museum in Santiago de Compostela.

About the artist

Lars Arrhenius

Lars Arrhenius (1966-2020) was a visual artist in constant change, moving fluidly between art forms. His work, whatever its shape and expression, tends to be playful and full of cleverness, but it is also characterized by warm empathy and sharp social critique, with just a hint of cynicism. His art has been called humorous attempts at explaining the great questions of of our time. The works often had a popular appeal that took him beyond the art world and into children’s programmes on television as well as the subway system.
