C’est Bon 4 release exhibition
2002 July/August. Loftet, Lilla Torg, Malmö.
»An amazing comics exhibition with cute special effects. No firetrucks, though.«
Exhibited: Jacob Kindstedt, Mattias Elftorp, Oskar Aspman, Daniel Novakovic»En fantastisk serieutställning med gulliga specialeffekter. Dock inga brandbilar.«
This was our second exhibitions. Early on, we decided that exhibitions of comics originals are usually not that interesting. Neither are exhibitions where you’re supposed to read complete comics on the wall. Instead, we chose to create art specifically for the exhibition, which we did, and have done more or less ever since.
We also had the experience of a journalist who, after having talked with us about how comics aren’t just for kids anymore, etc, asked if he could take a copy of the issue that was released. “Sure”, we said, before he continued: “…my 10-year-old boy liked comics, so I will give it to him”. Which was a particularly poor choice considering the content of this specific issue. But what are you gonna do? That boy is a grown-up now and hopefully not too scarred by what he read.
