Reykjavík Museum of Photography Exhibition
Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir - Landscape (2012)
Ever since Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir finished her BA in Fine Art Photography in spring 2011, she’s been engaged in various projects. She has participated in the international photography project European Borderlines and is one of the young artists in the exhibition Fresh Faced + Wild Eyed, which was on view at the photographer's gallery in London in September 2012. Also, along with Iceland Review editor and photographer Páll Stefánsson, she hosts a new reality show for photographers on Icelandic TV channel Skjár 1, starting early next year.
In the exhibition Landscape (2012), Hallgrímsdóttir investigates webcams and their purpose. In description of the exhibition she writes “Mechanical eyes of webcams staring at Icelandic landscape the year round, put in their places for practical reasons, not to record beauty. Sometimes they can’t help but do so but mostly their view is dull. Their subject, both man-made and pure nature, is constantly changing due to weather, time of day and year.”
On display until December 4.
