Sunday 29 August 2 p.m. Ásmundarsafn, “I choose blossoming women …”
Gallery Talk for the family in connection with the exhibition “I choose blossoming women …” Woman as Symbol in the Art of Ásmundur Sveinsson.
A large part of Ásmundur Sveinsson’s art depict women – from loving mothers to domestic labourers, or gentle creatures to fearless giantess. They are signifiers of common sentimentalities, or allegories for natural phenomena or literature.
The works in the exhibition are selected from the entire career of the sculptor, giving an oeuvre of Sveinsson’s work from his early realistic rendition to a much stylised representation of his female subjects.
