Kayaking round the Faroes

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.” Press here to read more about the trip

Malerkursus Færøerne 2013 Kári Svensson

Kári Svensson født 1954 har i det seneste år udstillet på Island, Danmark, Norge,  Frankrig, Singapore, USA og flere steder. Han har udsmykket flere markante bygninger og deltaget i udstillinger over det meste af Nordeuropa. I 2007  deltog han i Big Painting Project i Lithauen, hvor internationale kunstnere over tre år skabte kæmpe malerier med henblik på at Vilnius i 2009 blev Europæisk Kulturby.


Kári har gennem mange år været en enspænder indenfor færøsk kunst. Hans udtryk ligger langt fra det traditionelle færøske maleri, hvor man finder naturtro gengivelser af livet i bygderne og de omkringliggende bjerge. Káris billeder fornyer det klassiske landskabsmaleri med sine legende strøg og sine abstrakte antydninger af genkendelig natur.

Forgotten Houses

Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that’s what you see at a toy store. And you must think you’re in a toy store, because you’re here shopping for an infant named Jeb.
