The exhibition “Soap Bubbles” by visual artists Ingvar Thór Ásmundsson and Bjargey Ólafsdóttir opened at Mokka café in Reykjavík on Thursday. The exhibition is part of the “Art without Borders” festival.
Ásmundsson specializes in unusual photographs and photographic series. For example he takes pictures of household appliances, cars, streetlights and inside washing machines, as the included photograph shows.
Ólafsdóttir, who has garnered considerable attention from both the local and international art community, does not limit her art creation to a certain genre. Two other exhibitions of hers are currently running in Reykjavík.
The “Soap Bubbles” exhibition is a combination of photographs and animations that feature daily life. Actions and experiences of various kinds have been caught on film. Although the artists have different approaches, they also have things in common.
“Art without Borders” has been held since 2004. The festival’s purpose is to increase the visibility of disabled individuals in society as well as their participation in the country’s cultural life.
The “Soap Bubbles” exhibition runs through May 14.
