/ CREATION / DESTRUCTION / - Guðlaug Mía Eyþórsdóttir: Variations - live performance

13.11.2021 | 14:00
Students from Menntaskóla í Tónlist, perform and interpret in music the sculptures of Guðlaug Mía Eyþórsdóttir, Variations.

Guðlaug Mía Eyþórsdóttir (b. 1988) completed a BA degree from the Fine Art Department of Iceland University of the Arts in 2012 and later studied at the MA program in Fine Art at the Koninklijke Academie in Gent, Belgium, from which she graduated in 2018. Guðlaug has initiated a broad range of projects within the arts and has worn many hats as a pub­lisher, curator and researcher. Between 2012-19 she initiated, along with fellow artists, the exhibition venues Kunschlager in Reykjavík and ABD Klubhuis in Antwerp, Belgium. In her practise Guðlaug concerns herself with the sculptural aspects of our surroundings observes the forms, textures and acts they consist of and explores whether daily activities can be materialised.

In her work Variations, Guðlaug Mía makes music her inspiration and materialises musical elements as sculpture. In an attempt to transform sound to material, length could be pitch, fragmentation be rhythm and emptiness silence. The sculptural elements of the works are open for musicological interpretation of the viewers, as well as groups of musicians who will be tasked with interpreting the sculptures in their own way at advertised events during the festival. 

A diverse group of music students of all ages, from Iceland University of the Arts, The Music High School and Vesturbær and Miðbær school bands, perform at events where Guðlaug Mía‘s sculptures are interpreted as music.

Due to new covid-19 restrictions, we are only allowed to let in 50 people at the time, and everyone is required to wear face masks.
