Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir: FutureCrash / Tribal TV
6. Sep 14 – 19. Oct 14
Ásdís Sif works with performance art in her video works, which take place in different ways in various places in time and space. Her FutureCrash/Tribal TV is a large video installation which springs from a previous piece by the artist, from the exhibition Apostles’ Clubhouse (2006). This comprises a large number of video works whose narrative is unconventional, including glimpses of past and future. Ásdís Sif explores the potential of the video medium for establishing rhythm and flow, and brings out a living picture of past and future. This overlap in time references films that are set in the future, in which beings with special powers appear in mysterious places, like long-forgotten splinters of memory.
