Ordinary Places | Joe Keys and Haraldur Jónsson at Museum night


The artists Joe Keys and Haraldur Jónsson guide visitors through their work at the exhibition Ordinary Places in Gerðarsafn. Admission is free and everyone is welcome while space allows.

In the exhibition Ordinary Places, Ívars Brynjólfsson’s photographs are in conversation with the works of Emma Heiðarsdóttir, Haraldur Jónsson, Joe Keys and Tine Bek; art that springs from the human being’s perception of the environment. The artists have in common that they pay the utmost attention to the everyday and bend the ordinary, often just by pointing to it. The works bear witness to every day, from which the artist has carved out a small fragment and filled his pockets to be able to show us the treasures.

The curators are Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir and Brynja Sveinsdóttir.

Work on photograph is by Joe Keys.
