Við þjótumst áfram á þjóðveginum á 120 kílómetra hraða í kolnaðarmyrkri. Það er rigning úti og taktfast hljóðið í biluðum rúðuþurrkunum yfirgnæfir spjallþáttinn í útvarpinu. Vegurinn leiðir okkur inn í einstefnugöng. Við slökkvum á rúðuþurrkunum, inn í göngunum er nógu hljótt til þess að heyra truflanirnar sem koma úr útvarpinu. Þessi göng virðast endalaus. Þau eru svo djúp að mörkin á milli vegar og veggja leysast upp. Við skynjum ekki hvað er upp og hvað er niður. Framljósin á bílnum vísa okkur veginn í gegnum þetta hyldýpi.

Artclick Daily presents: Schism-Chasm
by Helena Aðalsteinsdóttir & Leroy Chaar.
Within weeds of electrical wires and cables he found a tunnel. A tunnel, so dark, transformed like liquid with his every step. He did not know what was up or down, in fact he was in a space where it didn’t really matter. When he touched a surface with the palm of his hand, he felt it merge with him. As if the border between self and world were temporarily dissolving and collapsing.
Schism-Chasm is an exploration of suggestion, fueled by negative space. It is mapping (a representation of) a physical space onto a two dimensional canvas, with obscured edges removing and displacing contexts, sculpting a synthesis of concrete and unconscious elements.
On Friday the 24th of March at 12:00 (UTC: +0) Artclick Daily opens Schism-Chasm, a new work by Helena Aðalsteinsdóttir & Leroy Chaar.
Helena Aðalsteinsdóttir is an Icelandic artist who currently lives and works in Amsterdam. Her installation are investigations into notions of action, memory and witnesses of previously lived-in spaces. Helena mixes variously dynamic materials, like metal and band-aids, solid wood with shoelaces to create a dialog between actions, actors, and the shared responsibility each element has to construct a story of a bodily presence which just left the building.
Leroy Chaar is an Amsterdam-based sound designer and producer operating under several monikers. Recent projects of his focus on notions of disconnection and diffusion. His work often involves self-referential content, constructing reflective feedback loops.
