Body, Material and Space

The exhibition Body, Material and Space will be on display in Reykjanesbær Art Museum from 18:00 on the 16th of November 2018. This exhibition will combine the works of the artists Eygló Harðardóttir, Ólöf Helga Helgadóttir and Sólveig Aðalsteinsdóttir. What connects the three artists is their strong sense of material and how their work revolves around the structure of art, form, colour, space and time. Paper connects all three works but through very different approaches.

In the works of Eygló, who has studied the interaction of color, the edge of her works has as much importance as the body as you can see the interaction between the colors in the environment where they are displayed. In the works of Ólöf Helga are combinations and mental connections that defy the usual. The material she uses as the foundation of her work has a historical meaning which is very personal, and in her hands it transforms into recognizable things. The work of Sólveig are more conceptual as she has mapped some of her environment and memories with physical measurements. Sólveig’s piece go directly to the core of the material, the center of the space and have a strong connection to time. The manager of this exhibition is the artist Inga Þórey Jóhannsdóttir and she and the artists will be offering a guided tour on the Sunday 25th of November at 15:00. The exhibit will be on display until he 13th of January 2019.
