Jessica Auer: Landvörður
28 January–2 April
Jessica Auer has lived in Iceland and Canada for many years. She feels at home in Iceland but also follows in the same footsteps of the tourist who comes to Iceland in search of a new experience. Since 2016, Jessica has travelled around the country to document the tourist’s trail, as well as take photos of those who guard the land, rangers in Icelandic nature. Her work Landvörður deals with our joint responsibility for nature. It shows us how to touch the land and how we allow it to touch us, to move us. However, the work does not solely revolve around those who protect the land or use it, but it is also about the land itself and how we live on it, how everything is connected and flows together. We are particles that are connected in countless ways, we are all part of one whole.
The exhibition coincides with Jessica Auer’s installation at Skaftfell Bistró in Seyðisfjörður.
