Agape, published by Art & Theory, takes the viewer on a visual journey into different kinds of love. Louise Enhörning's unusual self-portraits deal with depth and surface, the real and the superficial. The book also includes an essay by art critic, philosopher, and writer Lars-Erik Hjerström Lappalainen.
The book title refers to the Greek word for love: agape means non-romantic love, affection, and charity.
Louise Enhörning's latest body of work is a meditation on love of different kinds. The title Agape references the Greek term for a form of non-romantic love, affection and charity. The photographs, with their luminous colours and unearthly atmosphere, deal simultaneously with depth and surface, the real and the superficial. In a seemingly random sequence of images a rhythm emerges, weaving a complex web of discovery. Agape features an essay by Swedish art critic, philosopher, and writer Lars-Erik Hjertström Lappalainen that takes the reader on a short journey through Louise Enhörning's distinctive world of love.
