D projects - 2008



D is a series of exhibitions at Hafnarhus, drawing its name from one of the building's galleries. It is intended as an ongoing project, by which the Reykjavik Museum hopes to draw attention to the work of promising artists who have not had prior private exhibitions in Iceland's major museums. All the artists will be creating new work for the space. The museum will publish an annual catalogue reviewing each year's shows. Curated by Reykjavik Museum staff.

D7 Ingirafn Steinarsson
10. jan - 2. March 2008
Ingiraf Steinarsson (b. 1973) The sculpture and installations inspect human behaviors and the order of things in their natural surroundings. He engineers his ideas and executes his works in a methodical manner to address social and human psychological conditions that are often inaccessible to scientific or quantified studies.

D8 - Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir
13 March  – 27 April 2008
Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir creates installations and video works, often with simple allusions which entreat the viewer’s interpretation on the subject of humanity, our environment, and our frames of reference.
Curated by Ólöf K. Sigurðardóttir.

D9 Jóna Hlif Halldórsdóttir
27. sep - 9.nov 2008
Jóna Hlíf Halldórsdóttir (b. 1978, Iceland) channels the past, the present and the future.  The motifs that reoccur in her installation, sculpture, photography, and painting are drawn from the depth of the human psyche.
Curated by Yean Fee Quay.
