The installation exhibition “Rubbish – A Journey though Magnús Tómasson’s Sketchbooks” opened in ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík yesterday as part of the art festival “Sequences 2007.”
Tómasson (born 1943) has held solo exhibitions since he was 19 and has received various awards for his work.
His most famous work is arguably the sculpture “Thotuhreidur” (“The Jet’s Nest”), outside Keflavík International Airport.
Although educated at the Copenhagen Academy of Art, Tómasson has always been active in the Icelandic art scene and was one of the founders of Gallery SÚM in 1968.
The exhibition is open until October 21. Admission is free.
