  • Description

    DANISH ARTISTS ARE PREPARING FOR AN EXHIBITION OF 'LIQUORICE ART' WHICH IS TO BE OPENED IN COPENHAGEN ON 6 SEPTEMBER. THE ARTISTS, SEVENTEEN OF THEM, WILL NOT BE PAID FOR THEIR TIME OR TROUBLE -- THE EDIBLE WORKS OF ART ARE TO BE SOLD BY AUCTION TO RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY.

    THE ARTISTS ARE BEING PROVIDED WITH THE BASIC MATERIALS FREE OF CHARGE BY A LIQUORICE FACTORY IN COPENHAGEN. YESTERDAY, ONE OF THEM, WILHELM FREDDIE, WENT ALONG TO SELECT WHAT HE NEEDED.

    IT WAS A TASK WHICH REQUIRED DEEP CONCENTRATION AND FAST DECISIONS. TASTE TOO SEEMED TO PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE.

    AS THE LIQUORICE OOZED AND SQUELCHED FROM THE MACHINES, FREDDIE, WITH THE AIR OF A CONNOISSEUR, TORE OFF PIECES, CHEWED THEM, SAVOURED THEM AND DECIDED.

    THE DECISION MADE, FREDDIE WENT BACK TO HIS STUDIO TO BEGIN WORK. ALTHOUGH HERE TOO TASTE PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IT TOOK SECOND PLACE TO AESTHETIC CONSIDERATIONS.

    TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED EFFECT FREDDIE USED EVERYTHING FROM SCISSORS TO A REVOLVER - SHOOTING THE LIQUORICE ON TO THE CANVAS. THE END PRODUCT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND BUT THE TASTE....
    PICTURES ALREADY COMPLETED BY THE OTHER ARTISTS ARE NOW ON SHOW AT THE FACTORY.
