Art: Ongoing Now: ‘Melancholy’ by Dominik Smialowski

Photographer Dominik Smialowski’s new exhibit presents a series of staged scenes revolving around a pilot who unexpectedly crash lands in an unforgiving foreign land. But this isn’t another reiteration of ‘Lost in Translation’—no, it’s actually much closer to ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. Smialowski’s exhibit is based around a science-fiction narrative; the pilot, lost and desperate, wears fantastical otherworldly costumes surrounded by alien and ethereal landscape. So turn off ‘Star Trek’, put down ‘Game Of Thrones’, turn off ‘League Of Legends’ and commence your quest over to the The Reykjavík Museum of Photography.

‘Melancholy’ is running at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography from 12-19 until August 11th. Admission is free!
