TWO SIDES OF ALICE
Alice is feeling bored and drowsy while in the forest having a picnic with the elder sister. Alice suddenly notices a talking clothed white rabbit with a pocket watch run past; she follows it down a rabbit hole when suddenly she falls a long way
to a curious hall with many locked doors of all sizes. She finds a small key to a door too small for her to fit through, but through it she sees an attractive garden. Alice ends up in a mysterious country where everything can happen, the scenery changes and it becomes a mysterious new world. She finds herself in is a much more colorful and adventures forest then the one she knows from home.
Two Sides of Alice is the title of Mazja Hillestrøm’s latest artwork. It’s a tribute to adventure, daydreaming, and playfulness in general and to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in particular. It’s also Mazja’s interpretation of the extraordinary relationship between
Alice Pleasance Liddell (4 May 1852 – 16 November 1934) and the writer, mathematician, logician, deacon, and photographer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll.
