Fluxus Performance at Reykjavík Art Museum

Renowned epicures will participate in a fluxus performance at Reykjavík Art Museum – Kjarvalsstadir today. The event is held to honor the world-famous fluxus artist Takako Saito and in relation to the Art of Chess exhibition.

Saito has designed more than 100 chessboards, many of which are based on the perception of the players. That also applies to the chessboards she contributed to the Kjarvalsstadir exhibition—one uses white and red wine as chess pieces while the other uses canapés.

Among participants in the fluxus performance are visual artist and wine enthusiast Thorri Hringsson and wine critic Steingrímur Sigurgeirsson. In their chess duel they have to rely on their sense of smell and flavor. Each glass symbolizes a different chess piece; they look the same but contain different types of wine.

Two other wine experts will play with the glasses while four other participants, including radio presenter Lísa Pálsdóttir and author Hugleikur Dagsson, will play with decorated canapés and feast upon the ones they’ve claimed.

The performance takes place between 5 pm and 7 pm. Admission is free.
