Alluding to Nature – Curatorial Talk

Sunday December 4th at 3 p.m., we invite you to a curatorial talk of the museum’s collection exhibition, Alluding to Nature, currently on view at Hafnarborg’s lower gallery. Curator Hólmar Hólm will lead guests through the exhibition, speaking about the artworks and the ideas presented.

The Hafnarborg Collection contains numerous artworks that allude to nature and this exhibition highlights a selection of these works, focusing on textural works, organic shapes and curved forms. The works on display are both two- and three-dimensional – reliefs and photographs, paintings, textiles and ceramics. Each showing in its own way how different artists approach and portray nature – but mankind’s earliest artistic endeavours have often been said to reflect a desire to imitate nature.

The exhibition features works by Auður Vésteinsdóttir, Daniel Reuter, Edda Jónsdóttir, Eiríkur Smith, Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir, Guðjón Ketilsson, Guðmundur Thoroddsen, Guðný Magnúsdóttir, Gurli Elbækgaard, Jóna Guðvarðardóttir, Jónína Guðnadóttir, Kogga, Margrét Sveinsdóttir, Nína Óskarsdóttir and Stefán Jónsson.
