Two new and very different exhibitions open at the ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík today. While Thóra Sigurdardóttir displays drawings and graphics, Sólrún Sumarlidadóttir from the band Amiina has a sound piece on display.
Sigurdardóttir’s work represents the walls and floors of the building, touching space and time, movement and stagnation. She studied in Iceland and Denmark and her work has been displayed in various galleries and museums, among other places in the Icelandic Art Museum.
In her sound piece, Sumarlidadóttir plays with the sound of running water and drops, glass and fingertips. She studied art in Iceland, the Netherlands and England. Her band Amiina is known for having played with Sigur Rós but is also respected in its own right.
The new exhibitions at ASÍ Art Museum run through May 24.
