New Exhibition Opens in Southwest Iceland Gallery

The exhibition “Kennls” (“Recognition/Identification”) by Icelandic artist Björk Gudnadóttir opens today in the Sudsudvestur Gallery in Reykjanesbaer, on Reykjanes peninsula in southwest Iceland.

The exhibition is comprised of linen sculptures, wood engravings and carton prints and together they form installations which tough upon facets of existence, communication and inner life, as explained in a press release from the gallery.

While working on her exhibition, the artist was inspired by Aristotle’s poetics, where “kennsl” (“anagnorisis” in ancient Greek) refers to the situation where one character in a tragedy is suddenly recognized or discovers his or her origin.

The Sudsudvestur Gallery is open every Saturday and Sunday between 1 pm and 5 pm and according to arrangement. Admission is free. “Kennsl” closes on August 24.
