Working with the layering and scraping of paint on acoustic guitars, Läsfeber draws parallels between painted layers and our image of the world around us. Today more than ever, we have access to many sources of information yet we are often force fed with one packaged and near-blindly accepted explanation of particular events. There is an obvious need to analyse from different perspectives but there is an equal necessity in scrutinising each and every picture we are presented with. Details fall away and narratives are coloured by the storyteller, intentionally or not. In worst case truths are painted over in favour of agendas or the governing politics of the day. Läsfeber attempts to encourage a questioning of and the clawing away at these painted layers to reveal the truths hidden beneath.
