Síðasta sýningarvika “Þá” í Gerðasafni

Síðasta sýningarvika Þá
27. október – 18. desember

Komið er að síðustu sýningarviku Þá, sem opnaði sem hluti alþjóðlegu listahátíðarinnar Cycle. Á sýningunni eru verk íslenskra og erlendra listamanna, sem fela í sér vísanir í sameiginleg einkenni tónlistar og myndlistar. Í verkunum er tíminn í forgrunni með sífelldum endurtekningum, framtíðarspám og fortíðarminni.

Tónlist er einungis til á meðan hún er spiluð: tilvist hennar reiðir sig á endurtekningar og ítrekanir, bæði í því ferli sem æfingar og tónleikar fela í sér, en einnig þegar hlustað er á tónlistina. Hver endurtekning er einstök í sjálfri sér, og í hverri ítrekun eru hlustandi og flytjandi ávarpaðir sem örlítið breyttar manneskjur. Þar af leiðandi má skilja ítrekun sem ummyndandi, jafnvel útópíska hugmynd, staðhæfingu um að nýtt tilverustig sé ávallt á næsta leiti.
Eva Wilson sýningarstjóri.
Sýningin hefur hlotið lofsamlega dóma alþjóðlegra listmiðla, þar á meðal Frieze og Sleek Art Magazine:
‘That Time,’ the title of the 2016 iteration, is borrowed from a Samuel Beckett play in which newness and aging are portrayed as cyclic, if not entirely illusory, processes. The first layer of questioning this title poses is how art and music exist differently in time; whereas art is often thought to exist ‘beyond’ time, music needs a ‘host,’ as Wilson put it: a listener, an instrument, a recording. But the name also refers to how a work exists in historical and – given the setting and selection of works – geological time.

Last days of That Time
27 October – 18 December

Now are the final days of the exhibition That Time which opened as part of Cycle Music and Art Festival. The exhibition presents works by Icelandic and international artists that deal with time as their subject matter and material.

The second iteration of Cycle Music and Art Festival and the exhibition That Time is guided by an interest in music in the context of thinking about and making art—understanding music as a means to structure and manipulate time. Music exists only when it is played: Its presence relies on repetitions and iterations both in the process of rehearsing and performing as well as in the act of listening. Each repetition in itself is singular, and with each iteration the listener or performer becomes or is addressed as a slightly different being.
Eva Wilson, curator.

The exhibition has received good reviews from e.g. Frieze og Sleek Art Magazine:
