Guided Talk I Ordinary Pictures


Given an insight into the exhibition Ordinary Pictures in Gerðarsafn. All are welcome while space allows and entry is free.


The exhibition Ordinary Pictures presents Ívars Brynjólfsson’s photographs in conversation with the works of Emma Heiðarsdóttir, Haraldur Jónsson, Joe Keys, Kristína Sigurðardóttir, Lukas Kindermann, Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir and Tine Bek. The artists of the exhibition have one thing in common: they pay the utmost attention to certain things, they move the everyday by flattening it or transforming it in other ways. During the exhibition, a dialogue is formed between Ívar’s photo series from 1991-2023 with sculptures, video works, photographic works and installations that also spring from the human being’s perception of his environment.

The exhibition opens in two phases, but between sales the topics and the approach of the exhibition’s artists develop and change.

Ordinary places opens in the west hall of Gerðarsafn on January 13th, where the perspective of photography is explored with works that refer to placelessness, everydayness and its transport.

Ordinary Pictures opens in the east hall of Gerðarsafn on February 10, where the photography technique itself will be introduced with references to the nature of the medium and the relationship between photography and science as well as natural phenomena.

The guided talk will take place in Icelandic.
