Sunday January 26th at 2 p.m., there will be an exhibition talk on Silent Spring, with artists Hertta Kiiski, Katrín Elvarsdóttir and Lilja Birgisdóttir, along with curator Daría Sól Andrews. The exhibition was opened Saturday January 18th, as a part of The Icelandic Photo Festival.
In Silent Spring, Lilja, Hertta and Katrín invoke a tender, coaching warmth towards environments neglected and at the brink of loss. By focusing in on the beauty in the found, in the renewed, they hope to awaken an urgent appreciation for the delicate state our deteriorating world is in. Working in the face of climate change, these three artists employ the photographic medium and a sculptural, sensory focus to environments which call for a nurturing attention.
Free entry and everyone is welcome. The talk will be held in English.
