Sigurður Guðjónsson at Skaftfell

Sigurður Guðjónsson will be screening his video work Lightroom from 2018 at Skaftfell in Seyðisfjörður. The exhibition C A B L E opens June 16th at 4 PM and is open until September 2nd. „The exhibition highlights the major changes and advances that communication technology has entailed. Overload of information and increasingly fast-paced communication in the present time provokes ideas about the submarine cable – the cord that carried telephone communication for the first time in Iceland over a century ago and was connected to land in Seyðisfjörður.“ (From Skaftfell’s website.) Skaftfell is the Center for Visual Art of East Iceland and is located in the village of Seyðisfjörður, for more information see their website.
