New Exhibitions Open at ASÍ Art Museum

Two new exhibitions open at the ASÍ Art Museum today by visual artist Gudrún Gunnarsdóttir, who usually works with textiles, and photographer Gudmundur Ingólfsson. Most of his pictures were taken inside oil tanks around Iceland.

Gudrún Gunnarsdóttir.

Gunnarsdóttir’s exhibition is called “Ad muna sinn fífil fegurri” in Icelandic, which is a play on words.

Literally it means “To remember one’s dandelion in a more beautiful state” and has to do with nostalgia, to reflect on faded beauty. All the artwork on display is based on the flower.

Ingólfsson is exhibiting his work at the invitation of Gunnarsdóttir. The photographs on display are part of a series that he has worked on since 1993.

Both exhibitions run through February 28. Admission to the museum is free. For further details, visit its website.
