Lone Ranging Romance 2004-2008


LONE RANGING ROMANCE 2004 - 2008 is a longing for larger than life hotdogs, utopian cream cakes, kaleidoscopes of Volvos and epic proportions.

GilbertandGrape have made the pledge to drive from the south to the north of Norway in a 1967 Volvo Amazon with their lone ranger, a 20 kilo stuffed moose head in the back seat. Driving through urban and rural landscapes with the immense dedication and commitment to their quest to return the lone ranger to the sunset in Nordkapp where the midnight sun never sets.

The field notebook presents a cross section of their journey so far and orientation of the detours they have encountered.  It invites the reader to contribute an instruction for a detour to the project in the form of a drawing.
