On the occasion of Another Space, an exhibition by Eygló Harðardóttir, The Living Art Museum warmly welcomes you to an artist talk with Eygló and Guðbjörg R. Jóhannesdóttir. The event starts at 20:00 Thursday the 18th of October at The Marshall House. The talk will take place in icelandic and be open to everyone.
Works by Eygló Harðardóttir gather together in Another Space, like crystals in constant growth, like reactive moments to material that has accumulated in process with the artist. Some works assist in displacing the space they occupy by implying an alternate to it. Others ground it, fasten it and make us aware of it. They weightlessly balance upon colour, content and a trust in found unaltered components. They assemble with a sense of impermanence and build new space.
For Eygló, works happen as an intuitive approach to the material, with no planned or perceived endpoint in sight, but rather a way of marking moments on surfaces. She explores the edges of the material, their structure, potential, discards and employs the opportunity to shift them. It is often more than not that the remnants of a long conversation with the material becomes the work we view in the end. In that process, and here in the exhibition, the material is stretched out, suspended, adjusted and re-arranged.
