Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir: De rien
2 June, 2022–24 July, 2022
We welcome you to the opening of our upcoming show, De rien by Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir on the 2nd of June, 5pm at Kling & Bang. Ingibjörg presents thirteen new sculptures, drawings, reliefs and spatial works, which were made especially for Kling & Bang.
We will also be celebrating the release of a new book by the artist, Cowards Can’t Wait for the Apocalypse, published by Tunglið publishing.
This all ends, just at a variable pace. Everything is gradually obliterated and erased. Except what is damaged and suddenly disappears. I want to stop time, slow destruction down.
Except this does not balance to zero. Destruction accumulates. A colourless hue of this and that. A faded shell of nothing. Sun faded zero.
But this nothing, this zero, still exists. You can light it, burn it down. But I refuse to burn this zero. It fits well in the palm. It‘s faded on one side. The colours are vanishing. The sun that I love, adore and miss destroys everything. And I brazenly hold nothing. De rien.
The exhibition is part of Reykjavík Arts Festival and is supported by the Icelandic Visual Arts Fund.
