Synthesis

20 Sep 14 – 18 Jan 15

Hafnarhús

This international exhibition comprises works by seven artists:  Tomas Saraceno (Argentina), Ernesto Neto (Brazil), Ragna Róbertsdóttir (Iceland), Ryuji Nakamura and Rintaro Hara (Japan), Mona Hatoum (Lebanon) and Monika Grzymala (Poland). The artists make three-dimensional installations which share the qualities of reflecting a certain perception, thinking and rhythm, which may be seen as an echo of life itself, of primal forces, the structure of the fabric of the world and the ongoing genesis of the universe. Another factor which unites the works is that they are the result of a process in which energy and time appear to have built them up. Curator Ingibjörg Jónsdóttir.
