Stories and forgotten news items inspire Guy Vording. Historical events from old newspapers and magazines or stories he has picked up along the way become the beginning of his work. He reads, studies and analyzes the texts and images he's been collecting during the last years and transforms them into another scene. Something new, something more intimate. At the heart of them lie both loneliness and loss of control. Subjects you can also find in his titles: The universe doesn't know you exist, Silly ideas about being independent and Black Pages. Often, America is the backdrop for the events. From a young age this country captivated Guy, which accounts for it playing an increasingly prominent role in his recent work. Almost all of his works are created in a series. The drawings and collages have a relatively small size, which renders watching them an intimate experience.
