The Daddy Cool project raises questions about how the subjective image of a close relative (in this case the author’s father who passed away in 2015) can be re-examined in the encounter with other people’s experiences of the same person. In a playful study of identity and disguise, Magntorn creates and tries out different personas for his father. He finds snapshots of his father posing as an actor in front of the camera. He photographs and examines his father’s personal belongings. And as the work progresses and the book is starting to take shape, the boundary between fiction and reality begins to dissolve.
