Gobbeddígobb – Galloping ahead!

SvMaHestur

Sumarið er á enda og fundarfært hjá Örkunum á ný. Ekki seinna vænna að leggja lokahönd á bókverkin fyrir sýninguna í Silkeborg! En það er greinilegt að nú slá Arkirnar undir nára. Við erum til dæmis næstum því hættar að blóta töskuverkefninu! Það stóð dálítið lengi í okkur, en fjölbreyttar útfærslur koma skemmtilega á  óvart. Í kjölfarið dúkka svo fleiri bækur upp!

Það stefnir allt í að sendinefnd Arkanna mæti á sýningaropnun í lok september og taki þátt í bókasmiðju. Ljónin á veginum eru auðvitað Gengið skelfilega og svartholið sem sogar allt af launareikningunum. Við látum ekkert stoppa okkur og stökkvum af stað!

Summer is over and ARKIR gather again for weekly meetings. Deadline date for sending works to Silkeborg is getting closer, so we are speeding up! The suitcase-project is turning out quite interesting and comparing the diverse and odd-looking boxes is mere pleasure. And then of course there are more book-objects popping up!

If all goes as planned, at least a smaller delegation of Arkir will show up at the opening in Kulturspinderiet and participate in the workshop. We look forward to it! The greatest obstacles so far are the terrible Monsters of Money: the nasty, screaming Exchange-Rate and the big, greedy, all-gorging Black-Hole in our bank accounts. But we gallop ahead and won’t let anything stop us!

Svo vaxa á okkur löng eyru og stórar framtennur …  If we don’t eat our vegetables we won’t get any pudding …
