Finnbogi Pétursson: Hz

At his private exhibition in the A-hall of the Reykjavík Art Museum - Hafnahús, the artist Finnbogi Pétursson presents a new work specifically tailored to the exhibition space. Throughout his four-decade career, Pétursson has worked with perception and emphasized the boundaries of vision and hearing. He has developed countless ways to make sound waves visible, highlighted the frequency of material and space, and work with the physics of the environment. At the exhibition in Hafnarhús, sound waves are led into a large pool and the ribbles of the water are reflected on the walls of the hall in an immersive installation.

Finnbogi Pétursson (b. 1959) took part in his first exhibition in 1980 at Gallery Sudurgata 7. He studied in 1979 - 1983 at the Icelandic College of Arts and Crafts, Iceland, and in 1983 - 1985 at the Jan Van Eyck Akademie, Holland. Pétursson is represented by BERG Contemporary, Reykjavík and Gallery Taik Persons, Berlin.
