Elisabeth (installation version 2)
Lars Arrhenius

Elisabeth is a formal facial portrait of a person from newborn baby to the last breath, in steady transformation. This animated short film has a resemblance with the films that focus on a mushroom or a flower that rapidly lives from spout-flower-back to soil in 20 seconds. This one is a bit longer though, but still a human life-span in 4 min is rapidly fast. Music is composed specially to this animation by Oscar Danielsson.

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.
