Kurt Johannessen hiked around the Finse area, stopped by selected stones and read fairy tales to them. He read 22 stories for 22 different stones. All the fairy tales came from the Asbjørnsen and Moe Collections, and all were about trolls. The book is a compilation of pictures of the stones and the titles of the fairy tales read to them. The book received a prize at the London Artists Book Fair at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, and was acquired by the Birmingham Museum.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
