Marcellvs L. & Munan Øvrelid at Skaftfell Summer Exhibition (06/19/2014)
The Skaftfell summer exhibition 2014 is entitled RÓ RÓ and presents a group of local and international visual artists who are in an active contact with Seyðisfjörður, a village with 670 inhabitants in East Iceland. Some of the artists live permanently in the town, others own houses or reside regularly in the fjord. On exhibition are new or recent works, which are made locally or refer to the place, in the Skaftfell gallery as well as various sites and venues throughout the town. Parallel is an event program that will take place over the course of the exhibition.
Dates: 17 June - 05 October 2014 Openning: 17 June 2014
"A black horse in Iceland’s lava desert, a fishing boat on the sea off Bahia, travelers at a railroad station in Berlin, pattering rain, glaring light, steam: the video and sound artist Marcellvs L.’s experimental works from his continuing series VideoRhizome are encounters with the world, points of intersection filtered from chaosmotic reality. The sense of time is decelerated through the subtle use of sound and long takes, and natural phenomena become the sources of invention. The wondrous unfolds in elaborate changes of apparently familiar situations and deploys a sublime audiovisual poetry of creation beyond the society of the spectacle." Synne Genzmer
