The third-annual “SEQUENCES real-time art festival” opens today consisting of over 20 projects with more than 40 national and international participants. The festival coincides with the Frieze Art Fair in London and the Iceland Airwaves music festival.
Many of these projects on the program are time-based works, such as performances, sound art, video and music, including a sonic exhibition with works by Darri Lorenzen, BJ Nilsen, Björn Quiring, Ingólfur Arnarsson and Finnbogi Pétursson at the Living Art Museum.
Another sound performance by Elín Hansdóttir and Úlfur Hansson will take place at the Grótta lighthouse. The Fort artist collective from Bremen will open a performance stage only during evening hours in a container close to the sea. There will be many more works in public spaces by Haraldur Jónsson, Sara Riel, Theresa Himmer, Unnur Mjöll Leifsdóttir, Halldór Arnar Úlfarsson, and many others.
There will also be a special focus on the festival’s first honorary artist: Rúrí. For Sequences 2008, Rúrí will present Vocal IV in collaboration with musician and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson in the Reykjavík Art Museum.
