In celebration Skaftfell’s 20th anniversary, and to fund raise for its continuing activities, the art centre is pleased to announce the launch of a suite of editions. The artists who have created the editions: Silvia Bächli & Eric Hattan (Switzerland); Margrét Blöndal (Iceland); Ragnar Kjartansson (Iceland); and Roman Signer (Switzerland) all have a connection with Seyðisfjörður and Skaftfell.
Silvia Bächli & Eric Hattan lived in Seyðisfjörður for four months in the spring of 2008, during their time here Silvia produced work for her solo exhibition at the 2009 La Biennale di Venezia, where she was representing Switzerland; in the fall of last year Margret H. Blöndal, from Reykjavík, created an installation throughout the gallery, pollur – spegill; while Ragnar Kjartansson was i.a. part of the 2016 exhibition, the Assembly of the Hyperboreans; while Roman Signer has regularly visited Seyðisfjörður and exhibited in Skaftfell in 2010.
All of the artists have made editions especially for Skaftfell. They are released for sale individually or as a complete portfolio set. Skaftfell is incredibly grateful for the artist donating these works for sale which will allow Skaftfell to raise funds to help support the wide range of programming, residencies and educational activities of the gallery.
