Exhibition, August and September 2005
Anew, the creation process appears as a central question in Adon Elmir's works and this time through his new exhibition 'Associations', which will take place at the cultural venue Petit Paris in Moss from 8 August to 3 September and farther in Sarpsborg from 5 September to 1 October. In this exhibition the artist tries to problematize the issue by searching for hidden elements in the spiritually life of the human being. The exhibited works will present the artist's attempt to show how the artwork reflects the objective through the subjective both in form and content.

'The Dream's Dead of Night' as a book cover
Book cover, 2004
Adon Elmir's 'The Dream's Dead of Night' (digital composition, 120 x 260 cm, 2004) has been published as a cover illustration for the novel 'Nekromantiker' by the Norwegian novelist Ingar Knudtsen, Schibsted Publishers, 2004. 'Nekromantiker' is a realistic novel with a surrealistic trait of character where the bounds between life and death, reality and magic become fluid. This finds expression finely and clearly in the cover illustration that the novelist is extremely pleased to. Ingar Knudtsen is one of the foremost novelists and authors within fantasy and magic realism in Norway. He has published so far above 25 books.

Works in graphic art
Graphic art, 2004
In collaboration with the creative centre 'Conception', some works by Adon Elmir will be produced by use of different digital print techniques as a trial project within graphic art. The starting point of this project is a selection of the artist's works that mainly are no longer available as originals. The goal is to enable the art-interested to obtain graphic copies of the works, in addition to seeking new graphic technologies that are in a constant development.
