Particular Facts was a small publishing house that I ran from 2013–2016 together with graphic designers Mats Lande and Asbjørn René Josdal.
The first publication, Pablo Pedersen (2013), looked at the visual heritage of Pablo Picasso in Norway.
The book included a visual essay by Mats Lande, a fictional account of what would have happened if Picasso ever came to Norway by Olav Løkken Reisop, and an essay by Theodor Barth and Henrik Mojord Jahnsen on possessing another artist’s work. In addition, former Henie Onstad director, Per Hovdenakk, wrote about Norwegian artist’s connection to Picasso, and I interviewed artists Lene Berg, Ane Hjort Guttu, Marte Johnslien and Torbjørn Rødland on their direct and indirect relationships with Picasso.
