The Wheel: Within Reach
THE WHEEL is an exhibition series initiated by Reykjavík Association of Sculptors in public space, where works of art wind along bike- and walking paths in the city. WITHIN REACH is the fourth in a series of five summer exhibitions, leading up to the Association’s 50th anniversary in 2022.
WITHIN REACH, the fourth edition of the Wheel, opens June 12, 2021. This time the exhibition takes place in Laugardalur, a large area where business and residential areas meet and shape the environment and human life. Diverse work processes, transportation and stir take place within the area, affecting the general outlook, the beings, hierarchies and cultures within and outside it.
WITHIN REACH looks at arts ability to reach the part of reality that falls in between or is left behind when we try to organize and understand the world around us as a man-made environment. By stretching in between buildings and human activities, a conversation opens up about what we see, what we know and take for granted. In addition to intervening in the cityscape, the works in the exhibition intervene in certain situations, our stance towards time and the environment, the systems we have created and private spaces.
