This exhibition presents the result of a workshop with the 3rd year students of the Fine Art Department of the Iceland Academy of the Arts. The two week long workshop is done in collaboration with the Dieter Roth Academy and is lead by Björn Roth and Kristján Steingrímur Jónsson.
The weather was beautiful when they arrived but it wasn’t long until the storm hit. All the roads out of the fjord were blocked. Some of them had to seek help from the locals, and they were generous enough to lend them better suited clothes. It was interesting to see how these unusual circumstances affected the subject matter of the students in the exhibition.
