Kling & Bang welcomes you to the opening of the exhibition feigðarós — dreamfields, by Anna Hrund Másdóttir, Ragnheiður Káradóttir and Steinunn Önnudóttir. The exhibition opens on May 22nd, from 3 – 6pm, and runs until July 4th.
feigðarós — dreamfields is not a traditional group exhibition but their collaborative artwork – a show where their individual ideas and artistic palettes have blended and transformed as they get to know each other’s work and thought processes.
The installation is an immersive environment where viewers can walk around sculptures that ultimately render an otherworldly vista. They offer a journey of organic, simulated, abstract and invented textures in a landscape implying desolation while drawing up scenes both in miniature and monumental scale.
Parallel to the installation the artists photographed textural experiments placed in otherworldly surroundings – exhibited both in the show and catalogue. The catalogue also has new textworks written by four Icelandic authors; Bergþóra Snæbjörnsdóttir, Guðrún Eva Mínervudóttir, Gunnar Theodór Eggertsson and Tyrfingur Tyrfingsson who thoughtfully shared their ideas and input, giving different frameworks for the artworks.
The exhibition is funded by the Icelandic Visual Arts Fund and the Artist Salary Fund/Rannís.
The publication is funded by the Icelandic Visual Arts Fund and Myndstef.
