Old herring factory in Djúpavík
Everyone has a spirit animal, right? And that means the herring is fair game. Artist Claus Sterneck from Frankfurt, Germany feels a spiritual connection to the old herring factory in Djúpavík, saying: “It may sound a bit strange, but I feel that maybe I was a herring which was processed in this old herring factory.” Strange indeed, but Claus isn’t the first to take an interest in the herring factory. For instance, Jónsi from Sigur Rós has also taken an artistic interest, and it features in the Sigur Rós documentary Heima.
Claus has chosen to have his concurrent exhibitions – “Pictures and their sounds” and “200+ pictures” – in the old factory itself. His unique showing includes a picture.
