Connected by the shared interest of using colour, water and evaporation as the core idea of their work, the six participating contemporary artists will make use of water in their works and research what are the traces of change.
Canadian-born artist Florence Lam will present ‘The Particularities of a Place’, a performance piece realised in 2015 and ‘Tap Water’, a video work created in 2009. Florence Lam’s works are time-based pieces that involve a direct interaction with different sensory perspectives. The viewer is positioned in a state of witnessing the birth and constant deterioration of material as a performance. The artist is in control of the presentation but at the same time can’t control how the materials of her work will perform. In this way, she exposes the life within the materials she uses as they interact with the audience.
'Traces of Water’ is curated by Agusta Kristófersdóttir and Birgir Birgisson Snæbjörn. Participating artists: Anna Run Tryggvadottir, Florence Lam, Harpa deformation, Hulda Stefánsdóttir, John Zurier and Margaret H. Blöndal.
‘Traces of Water’ exhibition will open on Friday, 27 May 2016, and will run until August 21, 2016.
