Curator’s talk – The World Without Us

Sunday, September 6th at 3 p.m. the exhibition’s curators, Aðalheiður Valgeirsdóttir og Aldís Arnardóttir, will discuss the exhibition with guests of Hafnarborg. Their proposal was chosen when Hafnarborg called for exhibition-proposals for the fall exhibition in Hafnarborg 2015.

In the exhibition The World Without Us Icelandic artists have been lead together that address the universe in their works and shead light on specific parts of it, the far away or the upclose, micro or macro. This way the many dimensions of the universe are unrevieled where at the same time we look for continuity and wholeness.

The artists that have work in the exhibition belong to different generations and their pieces are made in various mediums. They are: Björg Þorsteinsdóttir (1940), Brynhildur Þorgeirsdóttir (1955), Finnur Jónsson (1892-1993), Gerður Helgadóttir (1928-1975), Marta María Jónsdóttir (1974), Ragnar Már Nikulásson (1985), Steina Vasulka (1940) og Vilhjálmur Þorberg Bergsson (1937).
