The fish in their cages are flattered by having art works in the tanks. It was so much fun to see how quickly the vegetation adapts to the new environment. I saw some green stuff already finding its place on the art work.
Melted glass that looks just like ice melting in the spring.
Broken glass. We feel badly about braking glass. If you brake a mirror, the legend says you will have seven years of misfortune. Rakel Steinarsdóttir is producing these feelings in us by exhibiting art made of broken glass.
Rakel makes us as viewers feel strong and powerful emotions. Most will feel terribly uncomfortable to listen to the cutting music while walking through a windowed bridge, blended with something that sounds like walking on broken glass. I was deeply affected by the cutting sound literally to my bones and marrow! Me and my husband hurried out as quickly as possible.
Others might feel only joy and no discomfort! No two humans are alike and we experience our surroundings in different ways.
In the work above uncountable cod liver oil capsules are placed between two window panes. The capsules form an amusing whole producing an image that reminds us of a swirl of herring in the sea.
This has truly been a multifaceted exhibition and it will be great to watch the artists for the coming years.
