Three solo exhibitions open at Safn Gallery

Three solo exhibitions by visual artists Sigurdur Gudjónsson, Huginn Thór Arason and Tony Trehy, opened in modern art gallery Safn on Laugavegur in Reykjavík yesterday.

Gudjónsson’s (born 1975) work mostly involves video installations, photography and audio artwork, and create a dark atmosphere where the spectator witnesses a series of mysterious rituals. Two video installations from 2006, “Bleak” and “Deathbed,” are being screened at Safn.

Huginn Thór Arason (born 1976) experiments with a variety of media, including performances, paintings, drawings and sculptures made of pizza, children’s clay and cotton. Arason combines childish forms with objects from everyday life, bright colors and silly performances in his work. On display at Safn is a range of work, including some made of clay, scented artwork, a combination of photography and drawings.

Tony Trehy (born 1960) is a poet and curator from Manchester, England. On display at Safn is his text-based artwork entitled “Reykjavík” where he uses “the language of mathematics and the many dimensions of geometry, as well as geology, philosophy and visual art, to create a proposition for a poetic system about the space and the symbolism of the city.”

The exhibitions are open Wednesdays through Sunday afternoons until October 7. Admission is free.
