National Museum of Iceland “Looks with Fingers”

By Iceland Review

The National Museum of Iceland opens the exhibition “To Look with Fingers” today, displaying three-dimensional artwork by blind and visually impaired children created at Reykjavík School of Visual Art in the 2007-2008 winter term.

During the project, students and teachers experimented with various textures, smells and sounds and applied different materials to create “adventure-like” sculptures ranging from strange-looking jewelries to landscapes.

Two groups of other students at the art school (ten to 12-year-olds) then used the sculptures as inspiration for drawings which are also on display at the National Museum.

The “To Look with Fingers” exhibition is open until March 9.
