NEW RELEASE – GERÐARSAFN – KÓPAVOGUR ART MUSEUM
13 of August – 27th of September 2015

Where does music come from, and how is it released? Is music an exception to the rule (of silence) or the greatest law of all? Are we composers or, perhaps, just instruments? NEW RELEASE brings together Icelandic and international artists whose work is in tune with these questions.

NEW RELEASE presents the works of Andreas Greiner (DE) & Tyler Friedman (US), Berglind María Tómasdóttir (IS), Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir (IS), Boris Ondreička (SK), Charles Stankievech (CA), Christina Kubisch (DE), Curver Thoroddsen (IS), Einar Torfi Einarsson (IS), Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir (IS), Jeremy Shaw (CA), Katrína Mogensen (IS), Logi Leó Gunnarsson (IS), Ólafur Elíasson (DK/IS), Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson (IS), Sigurður Guðjónsson (IS) & Þráinn Hjálmarsson (IS) and The Icelandic Love Corporation (IS).

DIPTYCH
KÓPAVOGSHÆLI
20.00
14 AUGUST

Visual artist Sigurdur Gudjónsson and composer Thráinn Hjálmarsson collaborate with The Icelandic Flute Ensemble to create Diptych which will be premiered at the Festival. Diptych will be performed live but will then gain a life of it’s own as an independent piece of visual and sound art later on. The live performance takes place in Kópavogur former Asylum, which is currently being renovated. Its raw interior will inevitably add a voice into this multi-layered installation of sounds and visuals, which is intertwined with the musician’s performance. The festival exhibits interdisciplinary works and collaborations with music as central focus in found locations, public spaces and the traditional concert hall. These works come from the fields of contemporary music, sound art, performance art and architecture.

Nowhere else/Hvergi annarsstaðar

Hannes Lárusson, Guido van der Werve, Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir, Mathias Kessler, Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir, Ragnar Már Nikulásarson, Sigurður Guðjónsson, Árni Einarsson og Sirra Sigrún Sigurðardóttir,

Nowhere else/Hvergi annarsstaðar
Er sýning og útgáfa í umsjá Sirru Sigrúnar Sigurðardóttur, en í sýningunni taka þátt 8 alþjóðlegir listamenn og 1 lífræðingur. Titill sýningarinnar er vísan til einnar áhrifamestu myndar mannkynssögunnar “The Pale blue dot”, Fölblár punktur sem var tekin fyrir 25 árum (1990) af geimkönnunarfarinu Voyager 1. Þegar könnunarfarið var um það bil að yfirgefa sólkerfi okkar var myndavélum Voyager snúið aftur í átt til jarðar og myndin tekin úr 6 billjón kílómetra fjarlægð. Jörðin birtist aðeins sem örsmátt rykkorn svífandi í sólargeisla umkringt myrkri útgeimsins. Í kjölfar myndbirtingarinnar skrifaði stjarnfræðingurinn Carl Sagan einn áhrifamesta texta síðustu aldar, þar sem hann nær á kristaltæran hátt að draga fram hrollkaldan sannleikann sem myndin birtir okkur. Það er enginn annar staður, hvergi annarsstaðar en á þessum litla punkti sem við getum lifað – þarna er öll tilvera mannkyns frá upphafi til enda.

Listafólkið ávarpar með verkum sínum hugmyndina um okkur og mennskuna í óravíddum alheimsins jafnt í tíma og rúmi. Hér þjónar “Pale blue dot” – ljósmyndin hlutverki einhverskonar upphafspunkts. Hún er kjarninn sem sendir frá sér geisla sem breytir hugmyndunum um okkur sjálf. Geisla sem varpa ljósi á ólíka en samtvinnaða fleti mannlegrar tilveru í samtímanum; umhverfis- og efnahagsmál, pólitík og samfélagsmál. Frá því persónulega til hins altæka. Eiginlegar og ímyndaðar langferðir sem oftar en ekki enda þó oft í garðinum heima.

Sýningin verður opnuð föstudaginn 3. júlí 2015, kl. 17:00 í Verksmiðjunni á Hjalteyri. Opnunin stendur til kl. 21:00 um kvöldið. www.verksmidjan.blogspot.com

Skulptur
English 2015. 104 pp., 65 ills.

Edited by Royal British Society of Sculptors, Texts by Milena Hoegsberg, Cecile Høgsbro Østergaard, Ronald Jones, Laura Köönikkä u.a., Photographs by Anne-Katrin Purkiss, graphic design by John Morgan studio.

Skulptur includes exceptional work by seventeen contemporary sculptors from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden who were selected by the Royal British Society of Sculptors, London. From performance to object-based, video, and installation, their work embraces all aspects of the sculptural and challenges notions of the Nordic in its refreshing diversity. While Elmgreen & Dragset provocatively hold up a mirror to Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid, Sigurður Guðjónsson creates immersive sound and video installations of the vast, barren Icelandic landscapes and seascapes, and Swedish artist Michael Johansson gives the façade of the historic Royal British Society of Sculptors a ‘facelift,’ while Norwegian performance artist Karianne Stensland uses a pneumatic drill to carve marble while in a hypnotic state. Also included are essays on contemporary sculptural practice from each of the five countries.

‘THE JOURNEY’

Exploring the word by its different meanings, as a physical transportation in space and time, a migration between borders and territories.
The journey can also refer to a mental transportation, to a state of dreaming and reflecting.
In our digital era, we create journeys between what is virtual and what is real.
