Framing

Hugsteypan is a collaboration of two artists, Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir and Þórdís Jóhannesdóttir, but they have worked in collaboration since 2008. The exhibition Umgerð is site specific for the Hafnarborg main gallery but was originally installed at the Akureyri Art Museum – Ketilhús. Various materials mixes with painted surfaces and photographs that along with lighting bring forward countless different perspectives. While the viewer moves through the gallery he is encouraged to capture interesting compositions on his camera or smart phone and by that be a participant in the piece. By sharing photos of the exhibition on social media the viewer has a say on the development of the piece where photos are projected simultaneously into the installation and as part of it.
