Kjarval‘s oddiTIES – An Untold Story

The painter Jóhannes S. Kjarval was known for his eccentricities that challenged Icelandic society and its bourgeois values. The exhibition examines the idea that the artist’s eccentric behaviour and strange actions might be interpreted as performance art. Were they a part of the artist’s creative work-process and therefore containing a conscious artistic meaning? Artist Huginn Þór Arason is the instigator and curator of the project.
