Opening Today: ‘Me And My Mother’ By Ragnar Kjartansson

Has your mother ever spat on you? Ragnar Kjartansson’s has. In fact, she’s spat on him every five years since 2000 (at least, those are the times that we know of). Ragnar is perhaps best known for his performance, installation and video art, such as the critically acclaimed ‘The Visitors’, ‘A Lot of Sorrow’, and ‘Bliss’. If you’re into spitting, mothers, videos, or art, then head down to the i8 Gallery to check out the work of this world-famous Icelandic artist. His previous work from 2000, 2005, and 2010 will also be on display.

The exhibit runs from June 11 – 22 August at i8 Gallery. Weekdays 11-17, Saturday 13-17. Admission is free. There is a special opening party on June 11 at 17:00. See the full listing here.
