Volcanic Activity in ASÍ Art Museum

French artist Paul Armand Gette and Icelandic artist Halldór Ásgeirsson will hold a joint exhibition in the ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík May 16 to June 15 where they approach the theme of volcanic activity from different angles.

In his art work, Gette researches the interplay of erotica and other natural phenomena through science. Before he became an artist, Gette studied biology and now he integrates his academic background into his art.

Ásgeirsson, on the other hand, investigates the interplay of symbols and the basic elements: earth, water, fire and air. He welds together lava stones that he has collected in different corners of the world and turns them into a black glaze.

In an ASÍ press release it says that “the artists weave the exhibition into the museum with their conversations on nature and erotica.”

The museum is open daily except Mondays and admission is free.
