Documentary illustrator Rán Flygenring spent the summer of 2015 travelling around Iceland, documenting her experiences as a participant in Iceland’s rich and lively bathing culture with the illustrative medium of pen and paper. This exhibition showcases the breadth of her summer’s experiences, with 150 new drawings and three-dimensional paper constructions articulating a specific cultural and national experience of relaxation and leisure intersecting with tourism, nature, geology, and nomadic travel. Though simple in composition, each drawing is rife with the meaning, imagery, humour and ease that illustrative arts can afford.

The exhibit is shown at Spark Design Space from October 1 to December. Spark is open weekdays 10:00-18:00 and Saturdays 12:00-16:00. There is a special opening party today at 17:00. For more information, see our full listing here.
