rúrí – glassrain

National Gallery of Iceland from the 4th of March until the 17th of September, 2023.

Glassrain is an installation from 1984, one of the first of Rúrí‘s many works that address the theme of time and menace. Glassrain comprises 500 razor-sharp fragments of glass, each ending in a point; the glass sheets, of variable length, hang in clusters from ceiling to floor. Each piece is suspended on a clear thread, and when a visitor walks past the piece, air currents lead the glass pieces to turn on their threads.

Gallery Port from the 4th of March until the 18th of March, 2023.

The exhibition Through the Portal revolves around a séance comitted by the ILC in 2019 with the deceased Icelandic artist Ásgrímur. The séance was comitted in preparation for their exhibition at The National Gallery of Iceland, Water and Blood the same year.


Dagrún aðalsteinsdóttir – orientation

Y gallery from the 4th of March

Y gallery organizes exhibitions in its gallery space located in an old gas station underneath an apartment building in downtown Kópavogur, Iceland. The house was designed by architect Benjamín Magnússon in the seventies and imagined as a ‚cité‘ to encompass all of societies needs with over two hundred apartments combined with retail housing, a rooftop park (the radial park is situated on top of the garage, a nod to Le Corbusier’s La Cité Radieuse), underground parking completed with a gas station in the basement.

Y emphasizes three dimentional work, installations and sculptures since the architecture is best suited to exhibitions of that nature with windows along three sides of the exhibition space. Along with its gallery operations Y also organizes exhibition projects in public space. Now Dagrún Aðalsteinsdóttir’s work is on display.
