Yes, a falling tree makes a sound (and it has a lot to say)

We are happy to announce the opening of a new and exciting group exhibition in Kling & Bang, curated by Helena Aðalsteinsdóttir.
Helena, together with the artists invite you to travel to utopian worlds fueled by love. Join a mutual understanding between humans and nature. Listen to the voices previously hidden in the crevasses and kept in the margins.
Feminist science fiction is rewriting patriarchal master narratives, the stories that continue to make up our world. This practice challenges the hegemonic systems and gives voice to marginalised identities that are unable to thrive under the patriarchal rule. Feminist perspectives offer new ways of looking at power, gender, ecology and spirituality.
In the past year, the world has undergone many changes and proven that it is not unshakable. When we step out of quarantine, how do we want to restart society? We have been given the opportunity to listen.
The exhibition is accompanied by a publication with writings from all of the artists of the show as well as other artists working on the borders of fiction and reality. The publication is designed by Gréta Þorkelsdóttir and will be published and celebrated in May during the last week of the exhibition.
To maintain proper social distancing there will be no official opening, but the exhibition will be open from 2-6pm Thursday March 27 and during regular opening hours from then on.
