  1. Stunningly beautiful, Kari. Great work from your archive… Thank you for sharing.

  2. I really like these recent self-portraits, Kari, you’ve really opened a new vein of promise with these. Hope all is going well with the baby. Adrian 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Adrian! this one, is archive, some years ago…
      …maybe you are talking about the one´s with the belly (…smiling…) – yes, different possibilities in there, different things to say…
      All is going ok, thank you again, Adrian!!

  3. I knew about Klimt Nudas Veritas, hey, but this one fits the bill too.

    Curiosity got me and I searched «Nudas Veritas» meaning from a few dictionaries, so I got: «Naked Truth; a complete and unembellished fact».

    So, encyclopedias apart: I mostly stared at your legs, because, ahem, a fact is a fact.

    Must be the light on them… or, erm, the Truth. Briefly: me likes.

    Left side of the diptych too, of course!

    • Thank you, Ben!! …this is part of a big series that was part of a collective exhibition called “7 for a secret never to be told” and it was a site-specific made in a old house of nuns… and I was in tv, in a special cultural program trying to be the host…it was fun…(…smiling so much…)
      …always a pleasure to have you here…

      • Was the exhibition based off the British rhyme?
        Or maybe another concept just borrowing a line?

        – There’s the earlier version:

        One for sorrow
        Two for mirth
        Three for a funeral
        And four for birth
        Five for heaven
        Six for hell
        Seven for the devil
        His own self

        – But I like the modern one more:

        One for Sorrow
        Two for Joy
        Three for a girl
        Four for a Boy
        Five for Silver
        Six for Gold
        Seven for a Secret
        Never to be told

        That one even have added verses going up to ten.
        Less gloomy than the more ancient version, haha:

        Eight for a Wish
        Nine for a Kiss
        Ten for a Bird
        You must not miss

        Aside, not sure I comprehend this bit «I was in tv, trying to be the host».
        For that specific exhibition? Or you once «tried» to host a cultural tv program a few times?

  4. …the inspiration was both, the modern and old version…
    …oh, no, no…it was that specific exhibition…and other stuff that I have been part of, like dance and collaborations with theater too… in the present, everything is more slow…
