Opening Today: ‘Image // Object’

Sure, art can be nice to look at, but sometimes there’s a certain pressure to try and decipher the “true” meaning. But with ‘Image // Object’, a new exhibit by Icelandic artists Áslaug Íris Katrín Friðjónsdóttir and Guðlaug Mía Eyþórsdóttir, the subject and star of the show is literally the artwork itself and the forms and colours that compose it. Both artists bring something different to the exhibit: Áslaug’s works tend to involve muted colour schemes and raw materials like concrete and wood mixed with drawings and paintings, while Guðlaug plays with vivid colours, striking forms, and even illusions in her pieces. Come enjoy this feast for the eyes, and don’t overthink it. The piece is a part of the Kunstschlager Chamber.

The show is held in Reykjavík Art Museum: Hafnarhús, admission is 1,400 ISK. The show runs from July 4 to 17, the special opening party is tonight at 15:00. Read the full listing here.
