Steingrímur Eyfjörd Exhibition Opens in Mosfellsbaer

An exhibition entitled “The Orgone Box” by Icelandic artist Steingrímur Eyfjörd opens in the Mosfellsbaer Exhibition Hall today. The Orgone Box was invented by Austrian-American psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) to capture the orgone energy, the stimulus of life, from the environment.

Eyfjörd’s box was made according to Reich’s drawings. In addition to the box itself, sketches by the artist will be on display in the exhibition hall. The exhibition calls for the participation of visitors, who are invited to experience the orgone energy by going into the box and writing down their thoughts, a press release describes.

Eyfjörd is one of Iceland’s most respected artists and represented the country in the Venice Biennale two years ago. For further information, visit his website.

“The Orgone Box” runs through October 31. Admission is free and all are welcome.

The Mosfellsbaer Exhibition Hall is located in the local library, on Thverholt 2. The exhibition is open during the opening hours of the library, on weekdays between 12 noon and 7 pm and on Saturdays between 12 noon and 3 pm.
