Ongoing Now: Höfuðverk

The pentagram, a symbol often used in Satanism, is said to be inspired by the head of a ram. In ‘Höfuðverk’, twelve Icelandic artists go even deeper than Satan, presenting works made entirely out of ram skulls—pretty brütal, right? What could possibly make you more aware of your own precious mortality than looking at a collage of skulls? Yes, this Lucifer-deluge of bone and death will be sure to haunt your dreams and inspire you. Go forth and mock that lamb of God.

‘Höfuðverk’ is showing now at Anarkía, and runs until August 15. Don’t miss out! See our listing here for more info.
