Kristín Morthens: Air Under Water

3 June2 July

Air Under Water is an excursion exploring territories unknown, yet faintly recognisable landscapes etched into the borders of our psyche. The artist, herself, becomes a conduit for ideas that seem familiar, yet totally novel to us, even sometimes to herself. The works communicate something deeply personal whilst searching for something cosmological, a shared oceanic feeling. There is a sense of eternity, of time without end, in these spiritually mystic landscapes. Where there are different forces at play, not binary forces, but multitudes of queer phenomena that co-exist within these dimensions the frames capture.
