The Basin of Truth by Páll Haukur

Páll Haukur’s exhibition The Basin of Truth opens in Ásmundarsalur on May 3rd at 6pm.

The basin of truth is a space of liminality–like the crossroads–where meaning gets assigned to our journeys. it is where we find ourself between the signified and its symbolic yet arbitrary counterpart. it is a place where guests are invited to draw a line or make an image, spell a word or a sentence with their fingers into the honey of the basin as long as it is a true thing. we beg that only truth enters the basin, for it is a place of fluctuating uncertainty, of doubt and vulnerability. the basin is a place where guests are invited to stoop down to meet their own golden reflection in the sweet-like surface and decide what is true enough to merit to be mixed with the honey, rupturing their own reflected image. it is a meditative performance hoping to invoke sympathy toward the complexity of truth. the basin is a receptacle for the stickiness of shared memory and collective truth, but also, it is an unorganised distribution of honey as it sticks to whoever passes through the basin of truth…

For more information on the exhibition see the website of Ásmundarsalur.
