Soundscape of Fossvogur | Outdoor sculpture

Sumar í Kópavogi

Soundscape of Fossvogur is a temporary outdoor sculpture which creates a dialogue between art and nature. The outdoor work is a product of RE-USE a European collaborative project between Iceland, Italy, Slovakia and the Czech Republic that examines the role of art creation in the context of sustainable behaviour.

The artwork represents the sound of Fossvogsdalur through ecologically collected driftwood from beaches in Hrútafjörður and Djúpavík, giving new life to material that exists without a given purpose.

Creators of Soundscape of Fossvogur:

Michal Machciník sculptor
Matyáš Barák designer
Linde Hanna Rongen dancer
Chiara Lusso anthropologist

RE-USE is lead by Sculpture Line in Czech Republic, Areacreativa42 in Italy, Jan Koniarek Gallery in Slovakia in collaboration with Gerðarsafn and The Natural History Museum in Kopavogur in Iceland. The purpose of the project is primarily to explore the boundaries between art and nature through temporary outdoor artworks. An open call was held where artists, naturalists, anthropologists, curators and scholars were invited to participate, and as a result a large conference was held in Prague where a competition took place and three proposals were chosen to be installed in Kópavogur, Venice and Usti nad Orlici in Czech Republic. RE-USE is cofounded by Creative Europe Program.
