Guided tours on the last day of exhibitions
The last day of the exhibitions YOKO ONO: ONE MORE STORY... at Hafnarhús and Ecosystem of Colors by Hildur Bjarnadóttir at Kjarvalsstaðir is Sunday, 5 February. Guided tours of both the exhibitions will be the same day at 15h00.
The exhibition YOKO ONO: ONE MORE STORY... aims to reveal the basic elements that define Yoko Ono’s extensive and diverse artistic career – a voyage through the notion of art itself, with a strong social and political engagement. On one hand there are the ‘Instruction’ pieces, which ask questions about the conceptual principles behind the work of art, highlighting its ephemerality while de-sanctifying the object, as well as enlisting the participation of spectators in its material realisation. On the other hand there are the narratives expressing Yoko Ono’s poetic and critical vision.
The works in the exhibition Ecosystem of Colors explore the desire to find one’s place in the world, a place of one’s own. The exhibition assembles dyed silk fabrics that hang from the ceiling along with woven wall pieces. Hildur has collected plants from Icelandic flora, extracted colors from the plants and dyed the fabrics and the threads with these colors. All the works in the exhibition are specific to a certain place and time.
Free with admission.
