Manuscript: Last days
The last day of the exhibition Manuscript by Leifur Ýmir Eyjólfsson at Reykjavík Art Museum Hafnarhús is Sunday, 3 March. Eyjólfsson got the Motivation Award of The Icelandic Art Prize 2019 for the exhibition.
Eyjólfsson‘s exhibition in the D-Gallery is based on a collection of words, texts and fragments og sentences that he has built and archived in recent years. He has a special interest in what comes up from day to day in communication between people or what pops up in your mind without any special meaning. This is the vernacular of the in-between, contemplation or mere filling of gaps.
Eyjólfsson displays his manuscript handwritten and burned into numerous clay plates mounted all over the exhibition walls.
