Frá mótun til muna – From earth to artefacts
September 14 - December 15Free
Welcome the exhibition “From shaping to remember” in the Museum House Húsavík.
Last fall, the exhibition was set up in the Árnesinga Art Museum in Hveragerði, with nine artists from all over the country. The group subsequently decided to disseminate this interesting knowledge of the diversity of this art to the public and make the exhibition a traveling exhibition. The first destination for this trip was in Höfn in Hornafjörður last June and another point of arrival is here in the Museum House in Húsavík this September. In addition to works by the artists, who were all specially prepared for the exhibition, it can be said that its essence is the documentary.
Based on a clay course hosted by Swedish artist Anders Fredholm, a group of women formed, calling themselves Brennuvarga. They enjoy coming together in the wild and burning clay. Exhibitors include Bjarnheiður Jóhannsdóttir, Guðbjörg Björnsdóttir, Hólmfríður Arngrímsdóttir, Hrönn Waltersdóttir, Ingibjörg Klemenzdóttir, Katrín V. Karlsdóttir, Ólöf Sæmundsdóttir, Steinunn Aldís Helgadóttir and Þórdís.
