You might have heard of (former Grapevine cover star) Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, a.k.a. Shoplifter, from her spectacular exhibit last summer at the Venice Biennale. Now the artist, who is known for her psychedelically colourful “hairscapes,” is back in Reykjavík.

For this new installation, journey through three multi-sensory cave-like spaces full of neon stalactites, ethereal lights, and overgrown plant-like hair extension organisms. If that’s not enough, Icelandic cult metal mavericks HAM created a soundscape for the exhibition, which they will perform, along with Reykjavík Grapevine’s 2019 Live Act Of The Year Kælan Mikla at the opening of the exhibition on January 24th. Tickets to the special concert are 6,900 ISK and can be bought online here.

The opening of the exhibition will happen tonight at 20h00 in the Reykjavík Art Museum: Hafnarhús,and will remain until the 22nd of March.
