Between mountain and tide / Guided tour and artist talk

The Living Art Museum is pleased to invite you to an open talk with artist Ragna Róbertsdóttir and curator Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir on Sunday April 8, 2018 at 2 pm about the exhibition Between mountain and tide in The Living Art Museum, The Marshall House.

The exhibition considers works in light of their current time and location, more than thirty years from Ragna´s first solo exhibition in The Living Art Museum in 1986.

Between mountain and tide traces a record through landscape, evidence of Ragna´s meticulous relation to materials found in nature. Confronted by the remains of volcanoes, the evolution of shells from the sea or multiples of cut lava, these materials mark an innate compulsion to see, feel, collect and contain before being able to understand. They form microcosms for the world – not in the least Ragna´s – and make effort to grasp it.

Curated by Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir and Becky Forsythe
Exhibition design by Ásmundur Hrafn Sturluson

Accompanying the exhibition is an extensive monograph on Ragna´s practice published by DISTANZ and offering a coherent look into her works from the eighties to the present.

It is possible to get your copy of the publication in The Living Art Museum, at special cost, while the exhibition stands.

The talk will be offered in Icelandic and English

Entrance is free and all are welcome!
