Listhús Residency is glad to invite all the community of Fjallabyggð to the multidiciplinary exhibition that will take place on the 31st October in Listhús Gallery.
66º Fjallabyggð corresponds to the region around Ólafsfjörður, which all the artists of Listhús Residency have been influenced by to produce the work that will be exhibited on this day. Yet all artists have responded in various ways; Abigail from the work space, Constanza with the Blue hour/ Darkness and the plants of the area, Nicolaj from the natural landscape and Margaret as a background for her story.
Art, music and words will give body to this collective exhibition composed by:
Constanza Gazmuri will be showing a series of photographs taken during the blue hour and also some studio photography of plants from the local area. Both are considered work in progress of the research that she is doing around the concept of darkness and the resistance of species in the context of low light and extreme weather.
Abigail Blueher uses the visual language and culture of mass media to create an alternate language with its own landscapes, myths and ideals.
Nicolaj Wamberg, musician and video performer, showing different ways of interacting with nature. The pieces composed reflect his perception of the local environment and the thoughts that arise from this experience.
Margaret O’ Toole Come and hear an extract from her story set around this area.
One woman, six lives and one town. A magician with threads and colour. She weaves life around her. Secrets are her currency.
Eru allir velkomnir!!
