The Unreal God And Aspects Of His Non-existent Universe - the comic

The Unreal God And Aspects Of his Non-Existent Universe was a fine art illustration installation for the University of Lincoln Fine Art Degree Show This Is It 2008.
This comic re-appropriates imagery from the original Take On Me video, exhibited within recreated space from the video, drawing visitors into an A-ha fan's world and the world of A-ha's iconic 1986 Take On Me comic book world.

In June 2011 I was given the opportunity to exhibit work at Alley Cafe in Nottingham. For this exhibition, I printed updated copies of the comic following more recent encounters with A-ha and experiences during their final tour in 2010.
The exhibition at Alley Cafe was entitled "How To Make A Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later (Flow My Tears, A-ha)" and ran from 2nd June to 4th July 2011.
The cafe location was site specific to the work, following on from the girl reading the comic in a cafe in the original video.

Limited edition copies of this comic are available to buy @ £3 each plus p&p - contact me if you're interested!!
