THE OBSERVANCE OF SHORT DAYS / VENJUR À STUTTUM DÖGUM
a work in progress
PREVIEW SHOW OPENING: Tuesday, 3 February 2015
Listhús í Fjallabyggð, Ólafsfjörður, Iceland
Over the Icelandic midwinter, we've been living in Ólafsfjörður, a place of silent snow and near-endless nights, where darkness creeps into the brightest of spaces and lives.
Our work offers glimpses of existence in this intersection of light and dark - in still photographs, words and audio soundscapes - from public locations to the most intimate spaces, a study of life during skammdegi, its celebrations and struggles.
Please join us for a drink at the opening.
Show runs to 10 February.
With support from the Listhús SKAMMEDEGI AIR Award.
