A photography and video installation exhibition by Julia Staples and Lana Vogestad, entitled “No Man’s Land,” opened in the Lost Horse Gallery on Vitastígur 9a in central Reykjavík yesterday; during “an evening of art, ice cream and beer.”

“No Man’s Land” is a term for land that is unoccupied, often due to fear or uncertainty. It is in many cases an area ownership of which is being disputed by two countries or political powers, a press release describes.

During war, it is a term used for the area of land between two enemy trenches, a sort of neutral ground that neither side wishes to openly move on or take control of due to threat of the other.
Grapevine Magazine, The City of Reykjavík and Ísbúdin Vesturbaer (the ice cream store in Vesturbaer, the west end of town) are all sponsors of this event.
The exhibition runs through October 25. For further information, visit the gallery’s website.
