Many of Lise Harlev's works consist of posters, brochures and placards printed in the kind of professional and dry layout which is reminiscent of those one encounters, for instance, in catalogue covers, electoral posters or travel agency ads.
By contrast, her textual messages – short, highly communicative text- formulate a subjective point of view on various political and social issues. They express the personal opinion of the artist, as well as the opinions of other individuals, outside and inside the art world.
Lise Harlev’s intention is to question, with sharp humour, the possibility of expressing a personal and complex opinion in the local and international scenario that is increasingly divided in opposite ideological alignments.
