As you are now so once was I/As I am now so will you be

Klāvs Liepiņš, Renāte Feizaka, Raimonda Sereikaitė-Kiziria 

26.08 – 03.10.2021

Opening: 26.08 kl. 17:00

The Living Art Museum welcomes you to the opening of the new exhibition AS YOU ARE NOW SO ONCE WAS I/AS I AM NOW SO WILL YOU BE on Good Thursday, August 26th at 5–9 pm. Thereafter, the exhibition will be open during the museum’s normal opening hours, until October 3rd.

Due to covid we ask visitors to please maintain a proper distance, wear a mask and use a sanitizer.

The participating artists Klāvs Liepiņš, Raimonda Sereikaitė-Kiziria and Renāte Feizaka, are all based and work in Iceland. Their works derive from an apparently different viewpoint yet they enchantedly meet in this exhibition in the realm of elemental human uncertainties. Raimonda´s large-scale, self-content sculptures with their vivid colours and stimulating textures are in consistency to the artist's fascination in altering the physical form of her pieces. The artist duo Klāvs Liepiņš and Renāte Feizaka use their Nature-Human theme as a starting point where political, cultural and existential hypotheses derive from. Their soil installation serves as a symbol of the fabrication and absurdity of nationalism : the concepts of heritage and belonging : as well as a representation of the cycle of life.

This exhibition comes as the result of a public open call issued by the board of the Living Art Museum in the autumn of 2020, aiming towards encourageing and reaching a more diverse group of artists that feel under-represented in the Icelandic art scene.
