Sindri Leifsson | Exi(t) in Norrköping
26.9 – 11.10 2015
Verkstad, Rum för konst and Norrköping
Opening 14:00 – 19:00 at Kvarngatan 38, Norrköping
Exi (t) by Sindri Leifsson will be on display at Verkstad, Rum för konst September 26th – October 11th. His work is placed throughout the public space in the city of Norrköping and may also be experienced after October 11.
Sindri Leifsson has processed Norrköping by producing art as he moves through the city. He searches for objects and spaces in the industrial landscape, and lets them become his material and gallery. Verkstad: Rum för konst, which is usually an exhibition space, is now functioning as a studio and gathering place. Here Leifsson has created an installation consisting of found items assembled into art objects, and gives them various treatments to highlight certain aspects of each one. From there he pairs the altered objects back with spaces in the city.
At Verkstad, Rum för konst you will find a catalogue containing documentation of the process as well as a map of where to find each installation. In time it will become harder to tell the work from its surroundings so feel free to interpret anything you see as part of the work. The exhibition goes on until the end of time.
The project is produced in collaboration with Norrköping AIR and Linköping University.
