Atli Pálsson: Home is where the cat rests
11 February–5 March
Atli Pálsson graduated from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in the spring of 2020. Atli’s works often scrutinize everyday activities and social values in a humorous way. Subjects such as gratuitous rewards, personal triumphs, hyper-hospitality and generosity have been at the forefront of his work, as well as characterisation. Excess often characterizes the presentation of these ideas. Lately, Atli has turned his attention to the home in his works in a series called “living spaces”. The exhibition “Home is where the cat rests” is a definite continuation of speculations about the environment and atmosphere that can be created in the home space. In the show, the viewer is invited to get to know a group of cats in their home. They look longingly out the window at the birds flying free. Maybe one day they will get to fly themselves.
