SHADOW BOY – THE WORLD OF ALFRED FLÓKI

PRIVAT VIEW ON THURSDAY, 5TH AT 5 PM.
Reykjavik Art Museum hosts the first exhibition of Alfred Flóki's drawings for a long time. The works are mostly owned by the Museum, and for the fist time the artist's early self-portraits are displayed together with his more famed works. Alfred Flóki's status in Icelandic art history is unique. He sought inspiration in the methods of symbolism and surrealism, in the teachings of mystics and poets, and never hesitated to shock his fellow man with daring and aggressive subject matter that sprung from those dark sources. Curator: Sjón. The exhibition ends on May 10th.
