“In memoriam”, a publication by Anna Vaivare, has reached the President of Iceland

“In memoriam”, a publication by our former residency artist Anna Vaivare, has reached the President of Iceland! 

The inside of the folded print shows drawings of eleven houses in Seyðisfjörður that were destroyed by a series of landslides in December 2020. The outside shows an abstract drawing reminiscent of mud or rubble. These drawings were one of the many outcomes of Anna’s residency at Skaftfell in April and May 2021. Their printed edition was designed by Anna and commissioned by Skaftfell. 

“In memoriam” can be purchased through Skaftfell – for further information feel free to send us an email ([email protected]).
