Long Weekend #3

27 January29 January

The exhibition Long weekend #3 which opens in Midgard Base Camp in Hvolsvöllur on Friday January 27th at 5 pm.
Long weekend #3 is the third part of an exhibition project, which first took place in 2021 in Oddson hostel, an abandoned facility in Reykjavík. The second part took place in 2022 at Hótel Hafnarfjall in Borgarnes.
The project, Long weekend, is an experiment in making visible some aspects of latent undercurrents in our times and takes on themes such as insistent elements in our surroundings which affect us everyday. The works in Long weekend #3 are an endeavour to capture the multiple sensibilities as well as the various susceptibilities during times of rapid change where time and space have acquired another meaning.
The exhibition lingers on the border of a certain distance and a peculiar intimacy while aiming to unravel symptoms and qualities in the zeitgeist. The artists approach the facility like an archaeological site, a place that contains phenomenal contemporary evidences. The works seeks to stimulate and activate inner locations and communicate with the viewers through installations, ongoing processes, sound, projections and participatory works.
Participants of Long weekend #3 are Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir, Eygló Harðardóttir, Freyja Eilíf, Friðgeir Einarsson, Gígja Jónsdóttir, Haraldur Jónsson, Logi Bjarnason, Logi Leó Gunnarsson, Margrét Helga Sesseljudóttir, Serge Comte, Sólbjört Vera Ómarsdóttir, Sigrún Hlín Sigurðardóttir, Stefán Hermannsson, Una Margrét Árnadóttir og Örn Alexander Ámundason.
