After a break, I am back... and now in Iceland! I arrived on December 30 at 6:45am, took a two-hour nap once I got to my friend's place, and then started installing "In Between" at Veður or Vindur, or Wind and Weather Gallery, in downtown Reykjavík. The gallery is a window gallery and the exhibitions are viewed from the sidewalk or street. The work is always on display so visitors can stop by anytime, day or night. I really love this about this unconventional space: the work is accessible to everyone, which feels important and exciting to me.
It took me three days to install with the help of a friend on one of those days. I had prepared some in my studio in the US which was very helpful, but deliberately chose to do just a little in advance. Even though I'm familiar with the gallery, I had no idea how "In Between" would work there. I think it's best to be as open as possible in situations like this and I wanted to allow the piece to take a new form in the new space. I'm so pleased with the new version and to be exhibiting at this gallery, and in Iceland! What a great way to start the New Year! "In Between" is on view through February 26. The gallery is located at Hverfisgata 37, 101 Reykjavík.
Thanks for reading.
