Nicola Turner: Myth and Miasma

Skaftfell Projects, Austurvegur 42, Seyðisfjörður

November 26 to December 15. Open Monday-Friday from 9:00-15:00

British artist Nicola Turner has been in residency at Skaftfell for the month of November. Now at the end of her stay, she is presenting an installation in Skaftfell’s hallway and bookstore on the second floor, entitled Myth and Miasma. The work will be on view from November 26 to December 15. Open during office hours: Monday-Friday from 9:00-15:00.

In her artistic practice, Nicola responds to the specific sites in which she finds herself, keeping an eye out for organic waste material to use in her work. By walking the landscape and absorbing the environment around Seyðisfjörður, she informed herself about the local history, farming structures, and geographical features of the place. One of the first features to capture her attention was the floating black circle in the fjord. In response to what she learned about the mysterious ring, she created the project Myth and Miasma.
