Rhyme - Works by Ásmundur Sveinsson and contemporary artists

The sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson was a 20th century man shaped by the 19th century. He took on various subjects in his art; at times looking to his heritage and the age that shaped him, and at others looking to the future, technology, and science. This exhibition showcases contemporary artists that tackle similar issues as Ásmundur did in his time, but in a context of a new age. All though presentation, thought and process might be somewhat different , the struggle is the same in a new century.
