Katie Paterson’s exhibits at The Living Art Museum during Reykjavik Arts Festival 2020

The Living Art Museum is proud to announce Katie Paterson’s exhibition, The Earth Has Many Keys which will take place during Reykjavik Arts Festival in 2020!

We are extremely proud to be able to present Paterson’s work here in Iceland. During these uncertain times the dates for the exhibition have not yet been set, although we are aiming towards an opening in August. We meet this situation with patience, and are very grateful for the collaboration with the artist and the Reykjavik Arts Festival, where art can surely flourish on its own terms.

Katie Paterson‘s works are certainly imposing, both in terms of scope and inspiration. Her ideas frequently involve transposing the immeasurable into familiar forms, such as clocks, letters, candles and light bulbs. Characterized by a poetic sense of the everyday, her work captures the expanses of outer space and of the human mind, playfully provoking and enthralling us.

Many of the artist‘s works deal directly or indirectly with man‘s effect on nature and the skies, with climate change and the short lifespan of man and earth. They serve as an urgent reminder, challenging us to rethink our relationship with nature.

Katie Paterson‘s collaboration with scientists is unique and has granted her an opportunity to make the intangible physical.

Katie Paterson is a rising star in the international art world who lives and works in Fife and Edinburgh, Scotland. This is her first exhibition in Iceland although she has extensive links to the country.
