“The Birthright”
by Magne Furuholmen

The Birthright

Text and letters have always been central as a pictorial element in Furuholmen's work. What happens if you deconstruct sentences, break them down into single words or put them together in new combinations?

In The Birthright, Furuholmen uses words from the song with the same title that he wrote and performed with A-ha in 2005 and demonstrates that the visual qualities and compositions of the words change our reading of a message.
