New exhibition: Raw Power
The exhibition Raw Power places Erró’s works from different periods in the context of contemporary Icelandic art. The works on display are diverse and in one way or another they reference and/or reflect the numerous media Erró is known for and the rich and dynamic ideology which is so apparent in his art.
In preparing this exhibition, it became clear that the narrative, the author characteristics of Erró himself, would be a predominating factor in choosing the other artists’ works. They are teeming with symbols and references, to art history and the visual culture of daily life. The artists are also preoccupied with sociological connections which play such a large role in art; to echo and illuminate its age. There is a strong undercurrent of unbridled creative force where found imagery and narrative is mixed with primitive creation and expression.
