Video-outstallation; permanent

The surroundings and houses close to Skaftell will be transformed into an exhibition venue Saturday November 30 when Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir (IS) will exhibit a large scale outdoor video installation. For the past weeks Gunnarsdóttir has recorded dreamlike and mystical video’s that will be projected on snow and together construct a sensuous spectacle. The installation will only be exhibited for one evening.

Furthermora a live stream from the event can be viewed at 18.00-18.15 here:

Treating videos as songs, Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir vj´s a combination of her visuals and reads poetry over them. Her work can vary from large video installations and performances to spoken word poetry and photography. She has conceived of a new work called The Blue Mountain for “ephemeropteræ 2013” where she transports herself to Los Angeles, only to fall silent “lost in a space with no beginning and no end”.
