About the piece
When Hardorp was a kid her nose bled a lot for some reason unknown. This was constantly represented in the drawings she made; almost every character had two long red lines reaching from their noses all the way down to their feet. Hardorp thought it would be interesting to make a paraphrase of these self-portraits and this is what it ended up looking like.
