The exhibition “Will-o’-the-wisp” by Harpa Árnadóttir opened at the ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík yesterday, the origins of which go back to her stay at the Baer Art Center in Skagafjördur, north Iceland, last summer.
During her stay, Árnadóttir kept an informal journal in pictures and text. Gradually, her entries began to form a whole.
“As familiar and alien phenomena crossed her path and unforeseen events cropped up, Árnadóttir realized the memories and emotions they evoked in unassuming images and poetic text,” a press release described.
She created the artwork at the location with the aid of various media, both out in the open air and inside the art center. She later completed her work in her Reykjavík studio.
Árnadóttir is both known as a painter and an author. This solo exhibition is in conjunction with the publication her new book, June
, set to be released by Crymogea on June 1.
The exhibition runs through June 26. Admission is free.
