“Cold Beaches – Warm Vibes” in East Iceland

A group exhibition by 12 Icelandic and Norwegian artists, entitled, “Kaldar strendur – heitir straumar” (“Cold Beaches – Warm Vibes”), opens in the Sláturhúsid culture center in Egilsstadir, east Iceland, today.

By Oili Puolitaival.

The artists, who come from east Iceland and the Vesteraalen region in Norway, first began collaborating a few years ago and constantly traveled back and forth across the ocean to visit each other. These trips inspired their current exhibition.

The title of the exhibition refers to the geographical distance separating the artists and at the same time the artistic vibe between them. Their work was first displayed in Norway in September 2008, and traveled to two other locations in Norway before coming to Egilsstadir.

The artists in question are, Agnieszka Sosnowska, Svandís Egilsdóttir, Aino Grib, Oili Puolitaival, Ingrid Larssen, Ove Aalo, Íris Lind Saevarsdóttir, Ólöf Björk Bragadóttir, Myriam Borst, Kristín Scheving, Ingunn Reinsnes og Siv Johansen.

Their work, paintings, textile art work, photographs and video installations, will be on display in Egilsstadir until February 8.
