IUA: Hildur Elísa Jónsdóttir
Event location: 

Performance by Hildur Elísa Jónsdóttir graduating from Fine Art at Iceland University of the Arts.

A group of musicians perform a composition and alongside them is a silent, extrinsic performer. Music consists of two main characteristics, sound and silence, who only exist in opposition to one another. Sound can be heard and silence is everything that sound is not and vice versa. The only thing they have in common is that someone has to perform them. By performing silence among musical performers who perform both sounds and silence the artist tries to get the viewer to reflect on the importance of sound and silence in music, and their role as two integral sides of a whole which only exist in relation to each other.
