1995 ? 98 I made a series of sculpture groups in paper pulp, based on the comic strip figures in the The Double comic. Sometimes the sculptures follow the basic story, sometimes they strike out on new adventures. The sculptures have all been exhibited in various galleries and museums, but never as a whole. I would like to continue the work with two new sculpture groups, based on the forthcoming new albums Alcydia and "Kidnapped Princesses", both written and directed by Geir Str?m.

"Trapped". This piece is based on the "Staircase Scene" in The Double. Our friends are reacting in different ways (not all of them heroic) to whatever fate provides at the bottom of the stairs. The title is a silly pun; "stairway" spells "trapp" in Norwegian.
