The surroundings and houses close to Skaftell will be transformed into an exhibition venue Saturday November 30 when ÃsdÃs Sif GunnarsdÃ³ttir (IS) will exhibit a large scale outdoor video installation. For the past weeks GunnarsdÃ³ttir has recorded dreamlike and mystical videoÂs 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: Â http://new.livestream.com/accounts/430978/events/2571965

Treating videos as songs, ÃsdÃs Sif GunnarsdÃ³ttir vjÂ´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 calledÂ The Blue MountainÂ for ÂephemeropterÃ¦ 2013ÂÂ where she transports herself to Los Angeles, only to fall silent Âlost in a space with no beginning and no endÂ.
