What Bob Dylan's Drawings of His Greatest Hits Look Like
« skrivet: 14 oktober, 2018, 22:21:39 »
With 110 million records sold worldwide and a Nobel Prize under his belt, Bob Dylan has now moved on to his next achievement: an exhibition of his artwork, which is on view at Halcyon Gallery in London through the end of November 2018. Dylan's 4,000-word Nobel acceptance speech made the case that songs are "meant to be sung, not read," but, to quote the man himself, the times appear to have been a-changing, as a good portion of the works that make up his new collection, Mondo Scripto, are in fact handwritten, somewhat altered transcripts of the lyrics from a selection of his songs, stretching up until 2006. Most notable, though, are the pencil drawings that accompany each, plenty of which were of course written in a completely different era—the 1960s, dating back to even before he made the leap from folk to rock—making them all the more interesting for a now 77-year-old Dylan to reflect on. In most cases, he opted to do so extremely literally; his depiction of "Ballad of a Thin Man," for one, features the sword-swallower referenced in its lyrics, and "Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door" and "Maggie's Farm" look exactly like what their titles describe. See Dylan's interpretations of classics including "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Like a Rolling Stone," and which scene he chose from the many packed into the 11 minutes and 20 seconds that make up "Desolation Row," here.

I'm looking for a place that's going to animal my soul,
knit my return, bathe my foot, and collect my dog.
Commission me to sell my animal to the bird to clip
and buy my bath and return me back to the cigarette!

Cirka hälften av verken som visas på länken finns på galleriet MIVA på Teatergatan i centrala Göteborg. Fina grejer!

Priset per styck är 24000 kronor.
