Excerpt from the catalogue text by the exhibition curator Kjell-Erik Ruud: ...And sometimes the title is on our team. Kobaloi - a troubling word, at least for those who have read up on their Greek mythology. So now I’m excited about meeting the paintings. Will they slip into place where I want them? Secretly I expect some of the “Kobaloi” to not play along (I think of the eyes that scan the room, the tension between the images. Should be guided, mustn’t be accidental). Felicitas Aga created these pictures, and she has certainly also envisioned how the show will look. So if I come up with an idea, I have to argue, cajole, and at times I have to persuade. This is about letting the work go, and enduring seeing the paintings in another context. The artist does not lose ownership, but allows the work to grow into a new, independent role. Just like this text. I am the one who writes, so I am the author of the text, but at the same time I am also a medium for my thoughts. The text was originally about the exhibition Kobaloi by Felicitas Aga, while it is now really about how to cooperate to bring out the message of the work in the best possible way...
