Saturday May 31, Magnús Logi Kristinsson, one of three characters in the movie, gives a performance. @17.00-20.00
Thursday June 5, Lecture and discussion on the film and exhibition.
The exhibition and movie Time and Time and Again is part of the Reykjavík Arts Festival 2014. The film Time and Time and Again reflects the life and art of Hreinn Friðfinnsson, one of his generation’s most admired artists. In this fifty-minute film, the directors, Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir and Markús Þór Andrésson, approach the subject in an unconventional way, where the borders between reality and fiction are dissolved.
During the festival a program of performance and discussions is hosted at the museum and a new video by Hreinn, Correspondance in red and green, was added to the exhibition.
Magnús Logi Kristinsson, one of the three characters in the movie, will give a performance on May 31. In the film, Magnús Logi plays the brother who was raised high in the mountains of Iceland, while Hreinn Friðfinnsson himself plays the twin who was brought up by the sea in Amsterdam. The experiment far exceeds expectations as it seems that decades separate the brothers. A problem arises when Aika (Kati Outinen) decides to bring the twins together for the first time, as Time is unpredictable.
On June 5, the museum will host a lecture and discussion on the film and exhibition. Participants will be Ingibjörg Magnadóttir, Oddný Eir Ævarsdóttir and Huldar Breiðfjörð.
The exhibition runs until June 5 and is the last exhibition at the Living Art Museum´s current location.
