Record your Memory at the Bookshop

Þriðjudag og miðvikudag, 28.-29. maí
Bókabúðin verður opin frá kl. 10:00-17:00.

Finissage miðvikudag 16:00-17:00.

Núverandi gestalistamenn Skaftfells, Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir (IS), Manfred Hubmann (AT), and Yann Leguay (F), munu halda tveggja daga sýningu á verkum sínum í Bókabúðinni-verkefnarými.

Yann Leguay mun sýna The sailing stone. Verkið sýnir ferðalag steins sem er tekin frá Seyðisfirði, fluttur á fjarlægan stað og síðan skilað aftur á upphaflega staðsetningu.

During the early decades of 2000, a common stone from the Seydifjordur’s mountains side has disappeared during a bit more than a week. The story says that it has travelled more than 6000 km over the ocean to go back at its exact place few days later. Some people have seen this stone on the road to Egilsstadir by a sunny day, some other have seen it passing in Europe a bit later. This strange stone is located near the waterfall on the left side of the fjord, exactly at  N 65° 17′ 9.398″ , O 13° 58′ 51.42.

Manfred Hubmann hefur að undanförnu unnið að nýjum verkum sem byggjast á jarðfræði og iðnaði. Hann mun sýna tvö verk: The crossing of road 47 and 460 in Hvalfjörður og still life of a snow pile.

During the course of my residency in Seisfjörður I am interested geological processes, the construction and shaping of landscapes and the forming and effects of these powers on surfaces and different materials.
Iceland is a fairly young landmass, geological and climatic activities make it possible to observe nature in its formation, almost like looking a sculptor over the shoulder.
Industrial architecture, human activities, the building of dams and roads have a strong impact on the formation and shaping of landscape as well and maybe there are even elves putting their hand to it.
I try to investigate and reflect these processes in my sculptures.

 

Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir vinnur að ljóðahljómplötu og á sýningunni mun hún umbreyta nokkrum  ljóðum úr því verkefni í gjörninga. Hver gjörningur verður sýndur fyrir einn áhorfanda í einu og stendur í 5 mínútur. Meðfram gjörningunum mun Ásdís sýna myndbandsupptökur af skipulögðu sjónrænu augnabliki. Aðgangseyrir fyrir hvern gjörning er 500 kr.

Yann Leguay: The sailing stone

During the early decades of 2000, a common stone from the Seydifjordur’s mountains side has disappeared during a bit more than a week. The story says that it has travelled more than 6000 km over the ocean to return to its exact location a few days later. Some people have seen this stone on the road to Egilsstadir by a sunny day, others have seen it pass by in Europe a bit later. This strange stone is located near the waterfall on the left side of the fjord, exactly at  N 65° 17′ 9.398″ , O 13° 58′ 51.42.

Yann Leguay (b. 1981, Fr) lives and works in Brussels. In his work involves the materiality of memory and data storage, Yann Leguay seeks to turn reality in on itself using basic means in the form of objects and videos or during installations and performances he gives at several concert venues, exhibitions and festivals in Europe and further. He developed the independent label Phonotopy which offers a conceptual approach to recording media, and currently runs the DRIFT collection within the Artkillart label.
