THE MIND – PERFORMANCE BY EGILL SÆBJÖRNSSON AND MARCIA MORAES. Hafnarhús, Thursday 5 November at 8 p.m.

Egill Sæbjörnsson opened his exhibition Spirit of Place and Narrative last Thursday at Reykjavik Art Museum – Hafnarhús. Last Sunday he gave an artist’s talk and next Thursday he will make a performance, The Mind, along with artist Marcia Moraes. The performance is in cooperation with Sequences Real Time Festival now taking place in Reykjavik.

EGILL SÆBJÖRNSSON - SPIRIT OF PLACE AND NARRATIVE
The narrative side of Egill Sæbjörnsson’s work comes to the fore in this exhibition at Hafnarhús. On display are works dating from 2005, featuring dialogue between characters or objects that convey unfolding events or time. Places and objects harbor a certain life that emerges in human proximity, within and beyond gallery walls. Through prior knowledge, each person bestows meaning on what crosses his or her path. Egill Sæbjörnsson was nominated for the 2010 Carnegie Art Award and did recently release his second music CD. A substantive book on his art was recently published in Germany. Egill lives and works in Berlin.
