Ágústa Kristófersdóttir, Director of Hafnarborg, talks about the exhibition Silent Spring, by artists Hertta Kiiski, Katrín Elvarsdóttir and Lilja Birgisdóttir. The exhibition opened last January as a part of The Icelandic Photography Festival 2020 and the curator is Daría Sól Andrews.
In the exhibition, Lilja, Hertta and Katrín invoke a tender warmth towards nature, while calling attention to the effects of our wasteful practices on the earth. Working in the face of climate change, they then employ the photographic medium and a sculptural, sensory focus to environments which call for a nurturing attention.
The exhibition was extended until mid-May, given current circumstances, but since the museum is currently closed, we hope you will enjoy the exhibition here instead.
