TWO PREVIEWS IN HAFNARHÚS THURSDAY, 19 MARCH AT 5 PM. ELÍN HANSDÓTTIR AND JEANETTE CASTIONI

Elín Hansdóttir, Parallax. Mynd í eigu Byggðasafns Hafnarfjarðar

PARALLAX – ELIN HANSDÓTTIR
Individual artist is invited to create an exhibition that underlines connections with life that is happening outside the walls of the museum. With her installation, Parallax, in gallerie A Elin Hansdottir eradicates the distinction between private and public space with questions like:
- What is the relevance of adding a false facade to a building, the  deception of which is revealed by a single step (pace) sideways?
- What happens if an exhibition hall is obliterated? 
- What happens when a room which you assume to be situated in, is in fact another room?
- How can we speak of a specific point of view, in light of its relative nature?
The exhibition ends on May 17th.
