Offbeat Icelandic Documentary Screened in New York

The documentary Steypa (“Concrete”), which explores the vibrant art scene in Iceland, will be screened on May 22 at the Scandinavia House in New York in conjunction with the exhibition “From Another Shore: Recent Icelandic Art.”

The documentary features seven of Iceland’s most acclaimed young artists, who “explore inspiration and creativity and share the diverse processes that spark a work of art in this eclectic, funky film that walks a fine line between realism and performance,” as it says in a press release from Scandinavia House.

Participants include Gabríela Fridriksdóttir, Ásmundur Ásmundsson, Katrín Sigurdardóttir, the Icelandic Love Corporation, Margrét Blöndal, Huginn Thór Arason and Unnar Örn Jónasson Audarson.

Director of Steypa Ragnheidur Gestsdóttir will be present for a post-screening Q&A.

“From Another Shore: Recent Icelandic Art” will be on display in the Scandinavia House until August 15.
