New exhibition – Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir: WERK – Labor Move
In her solo exhibition at Reykjavík Art Museum - Hafnarhús, Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir (b. 1973) focuses on social issues in a site-specific installation.
The installation WERK - Labor Move is made especially for the museum’s main hall as the building Hafnarhús was originally built as a warehouse on the quay.
The work consists of a three-channel filmic work, Labor Move; sculptures, directly related to the filmic work; and a video recording of the assembling of the sculptures in the building in the run-up to the exhibition opening.
The exhibition is based on an examination of the functioning of the multi-layered global economy, and the perspective of the familiar, the local, is used to analyse and project a connection with the global.
