An exhibition of works by visual artists and architects exploring the ambiguous and complex experience of the public space of the art gallery. The exhibition includes new works, some of which are based on historical material, reflecting ideas and plans that in many cases never became actual projects.

PATH / JOURNEY TO THE CENTER

Elín Hansdóttir & Rebecca Solnit
Book released by Crymogea, Iceland.
Design by: Gunnar Vilhjálmsson

In the book, the subjective and objective aspects of the installation PATH come together, through the interaction of text and images. The book is suggestive of the role of memory when reconstructing experience; of how tactile elements fuse to form a whole, determined by the structure of the installation and the more abstract experiences of each individual encountering the work.

RECONSTRUCTING THE REAL

10.09.09
San Francisco
Headlands Center for the Arts
Location: Building 944, Eastwing
7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Where does the human impulse to take the world apart and put it back together come from? 2009 AIR Elín Hansdóttir tackles this impulse by reconstructing the built environment around her. In creating architectural interventions, Hansdóttir points to the incredible power that architecture has over our every day movements and interactions. Her work calls attention to the close ties between our understanding of the world and the material realities that surround us. 2009 AIR Scott Oliver uses the process of dismantling and reassembling to repurpose every day objects, making them useful in new ways. These artists will present site-specific work that illustrates how disassembling physical objects can help construct an idea of reality.

PARALLAX

19.03.9 – 17.05.09
Reykjavik Art Museum
Iceland

What is the relevance of adding a false facade to a building, the deception of which is revealed by a single step (pace) sideways ? What happens if an exhibition hall is obliterated? What happens when a room which you assume to be situated in, is in fact another room? How can we speak of a specific point of view, in light of its relative nature?

With her installation in hall A Elin Hansdottir eradicates the distinction between private and public space; those familiar places in our lives that are continually shifting as a consequence of changes in the nature of society and its values. The individual not only orients herself/himself in time, but also in relation to thoughts and memories, coordinates or motion in a land-scape. The exhibit is a threshold of sorts (of the museum, the home, public space) which delineates the frontier between disparate worlds.
