The exhibition “Identity Check” by Ólafur S. Gíslason, inspired by the process of teenagers transcending adolescence, opened in the ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík on April 10. Today, the artist will talk about his exhibition at the museum at 3 pm.
“Identity Check” is based on a certain transitional period in the developing process of man, a press release describes. Young people who are transcending adolescence and are taking their first steps towards independence.
It is a point where the future awaits and everything seems possible. Their self-image is being developed in a society which today is facing a big change in its structure and values.
For his exhibition, Gíslason asked students from the Icelandic Vocational School to take on the task of making three big flags out of their own clothes.
The museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm. “Identity Check” runs until May 2. Admission is free.
