The Living Art Museum
The Marshall House
Grandagarður 20

Open Tues. – Sun. 12:00 – 18:00 (21:00 on Thursdays).

Let´s come together, let´s enjoy.
Let´s inhale, deep into our lungs.
Exhale into space, and then take a moment to contemplate.

We welcome you to Happy People – A smoking lounge offering a selection of objects and artwork that have been selected and created for you to interact with.

Mysterious sculptures have been inserted in to funky pipes for you to smoke, consume and inhale fruity flavours. This smoking experience is an attempt for new ways to experience art.

During the exhibition, objects by participating artists will be picked out of the space, and inserted into pipes to be smoked, creating a flowing rotation. Each smoking ceremony will be supported by live acts and performances.

For the opening we offer the smoking of the work by Hrafnhildur Helgadóttir, Mehraneh Atashi, Eggert Pétursson, Loidys Carnero and Hreinn Friðfinnsson.

The opening session will be supported by a foggy installation by Darri Lorenzen.

Stay tuned in for Happy People´s ever changing weekly intense smoke sessions!
