Icelandic Art Exhibit Named One of World’s Best

The exhibition “Trace” by Icelandic visual artist Elín Hansdóttir, which is currently on display at the i8 Gallery in Reykjavík, was recently named one of the top five art exhibitions to see around the world by the art website

From “Trace” by Elín Hansdóttir.

“This young, multi-disciplinary Icelander’s previous body of work involved immersive installations, like 2007’s warped staircase, ‘Drift’. Here she changes course, exploring the filmed movement of dance to create brightly colored abstract photos that occasionally resemble psychedelic flowers,” the author writes.

“Trace” is inspired by the work of American choreographer Loïe Fuller who, in her “Serpentine Dance”, conjured up the tracing of the kinetic energy which the body instigates. The last day of the exhibition is today, during Reykjavík Culture Night.
