This thesis highlights how art with minimal forms of expression communicate allegorical by discussing specific aspects in the interpretation of Maria Lindbergs artwork Att Ha.

The purpose of this study is to understand the varying messages that are being produced by stressing the relationship between the artwork and the viewer. Thereby deepen the understanding of a how meaning is created and its connection to culture as well as to subjective aspects like personal memories. The study shows that Lindbergs artwork is allegorical because of its visual structure that makes the viewer read it like a rebus. The artwork is read, interpreted through the viewers cultural position and personal memories. Its main message is humor which is tangible through its visual components but other aspects like ambiguity and irony are created through what is visually left out. Lindbergs minimal forms of expression creates a width of possible messages and the total interpretation is established beyond its visual constitution. By reading Lindbergs artwork allegorical the thesis suggests emphasizing the viewers personal memories and feelings to more accurately reflect the narrative aspect of interpretation. (Less)
