The world we meet in Nils Olav Boe`s photographic work is also artificial, insofar as its subject is small models that he first arranges before capturing on film. Boe`s miniature scenes give the external impression of being "clippings" taken from longer narratives, perhaps dramatic highpoints in a longer train of events. This is however not the case. No complete manuscript exists, and the sound effects that accompany the pictures are not related to what they show. Boe quite consciously plays on our longing to find understandable contexts even in fictive processes. When mounted on the wall, his pictures almost assume the form of showcase spaces, with the difference that their content cannot be related to a context we are expected to recognise. Rather, each space functions as a closed system.
