‘Just keep guessing’

Be sure to keep an eye on a-ha’s Facebook page, where there are some numerical clues being posted lately. As Morten said in his video greeting from Moscow last week, ‘There is something about numbers as well…I am not going to say more, but just keep guessing. 2015? Who knows…’

Update January 27:

As of December 4 and the Rock In Rio announcement, some of the number clues on Facebook have been decoded – but there are still several numbers you have not figured out yet! And there will be more numbers to come…

It has been 70 days since this one was posted:

Any ideas out there? :-)

‘Peeling a Glass Onion’

As an update to our previous post about ‘Glass Onion’, Dovecot Studios has announced that from 6 March to 25 April 2015 Magne will have a major exhibition of works at Dovecot, and ‘Glass Onion’ will form the centerpiece to this multi-disciplinary show. Both BBC Arts and Cover Magazine have recently featured news about the tapestry and upcoming exhibition.

“The Glass Onion tapestry was woven at Dovecot in summer 2014 and now forms the centrepiece to this exhibition. During further insightful visits to Dovecot, Furuholmen embraced the notion of exposing his work to the craft and perspective of others with a different focus in process to his own. This experience, coupled with the cultural and environmental impact of being in and around Dovecot and the building itself, inspired a new body of work for the exhibition using music, film, printmaking and large scale ceramic.”

The film below is a documentation of the ‘Glass Onion Tapestry’ project, and includes music composed by Magne as well:

On October 15, Magne was present at Dovecot Studios for a special private ceremony, to cut the tapestry from the loom. Dovecot shared these photos from the event on Facebook:

 

 

Keep an eye on magnef.org as well as dovecotstudios.com for updates about the exhibition.

‘We need to put the band back together’

The response to Magne’s photo on his Facebook page has been overwhelming. You guys are too kind!

 

 

Thousands of likes, comments and shares from fans around the world caused Magne to follow up with the story behind the sweater:

 

 

Many of you have sent messages here to a-ha.com asking about the availability of the sweater, so we’re glad to share that Magne has persuaded Moods of Norway to put aside a few sweaters for a-ha fans before they hit the stores in February! The Moods team were very happy to make this gesture for a-ha fans.

Starting today, a limited number of these great sweaters can be purchased directly from Moods of Norway here (in Europe) or here (in USA), while supplies last.
