The exhibition “Mourning” by Elsa Björg Magnúsdóttir opened in the Reykjavík Museum of Photography on April 8. The exhibition consists of three integral works; plaintive portraits expressing loss.
In her subject the artist seeks to express the heartache she experiences through her mother by projecting it in a photo project, which she calls “Portraits of Sorrow.”
Magnúsdóttir is a philosopher. She graduated with an MA in aesthetics and ethics from King’s College in London in 2007.
The exhibition runs until June 1 and admission is free.
Today between 2 and 4 pm, the photographer Jóna Thorvaldsdóttir will discuss classic photography at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography in relation to her exhibition “Senses” currently running at the museum, which has been very well received.
