Take a walk in downtown Reykjavik and embark on a spiritual and reflective journey ‘home’. How can or how should you arrive to this place called ‘home’? This exhibition, featuring prominent Icelandic artists and artists residing in Iceland, is located in commercial and residential windows around the city centre as well as in a mobile window gallery, Dragsúgur, which will travel around the city and be temporarily parked in public spaces.Dragsúgur (the Icelandic name for the wind that comes in from a window) is the embodiment of the gallery, transformed into a mobile window through his longing to experience walking in human form. The window is taking its journey home; meaning, home doesn’t always have to be where you originated from. In his travels, Dragsúgur will provide a space for artists to perform and for installations.
