Fylgjur are creatures from nordic mythology, spirits that protect and guide a human being in the form of an animal, where the type of animal reflects the character of the person. For this series of works Jauss & Gauger place silhouettes of animals onto previously painted abstract canvasses. They then rework the canvasses, often in multiple layers. Only after completion they take away the silhouettes and only then, the Fylgja becomes visible. The ‘FF’ in the series’ title stands for Fast Forward, as this series is an evolution form the first series, FylgjurEins.
