An exhibition of new outdoor works in public spaces in Reykjavik that winds along the cycle and walking paths of the city. A journey through public space becomes an unexpected, rewarding experience which will take walking, jogging and cycling passersby by surprise, jolting them onto different paths of perception. The Wheel – Gone with the Wind is the first in a series of five exhibitions which the Reykjavík Association of Sculptors intends to host on yearly basis, leading up to the society’s 50th anniversary in 2022. This first part examines the ways in which the visual arts can reveal and take on our present times, subjected to constant changes. This time, the path leads through an established residential area with smaller pockets of businesses, inside a circle formed by busy, clearly delineated streets within the city.
Opening: 3 June at 12 PM starts at Furugerdi 23
