Ole Mads Vevle is a controversial and award-winning artist working within the fields of art/performance/video/text and music. At the 2003 Cannes Film Festival, his short film, Love is the Law, was feted with not one but two awards during Critics Week. In But, What’s It All About? Vevle performs his own text accompanied by a video montage. A dialogue between a father and his son ensues. The son’s refrain of “But, what’s it all about?” elicits ever-more elaborate answers from his father. Vevle channels the language of the television, bombarding the audience with a continuous stream of information, mixing the high with the low, the comic and the tragic, the serious and nonsensical.
