Eygló Harðardóttir & Ríkharður H. Friðriksson (IS)
Hustle and Bustle / Ys og þys
Reykjavik Sculpture Association, The Sculpture Garden
6 April 21:00-23:00
Born in Reykjavík 1964, Harðardóttir studied at the Icelandic College of Arts and Crafts in 1983-87 and in 1987-90 at the AKI – Akademie voor Beeldende Kunst en Industrie, Enschede, Holland. Fridriksson was born in 1960 and studied composition in Reykjavík, New York, Siena and The Hague. They both live in Reykjavík.
Visual artist Harðardóttir and composer Friðriksson join forces in the video and sound work ‘Hustle and Bustle’, which will be performed during twilight and into the night. It is made from the images and sounds of Indian traffic. The recordings were made in South India and reflect the hustle, bustle and turbulence of the colourful ocean of the Indian people. The performance will be open-air, inside the work ‘Afterimages’ by Harðardóttir, situated in the Sculpture Garden next to the Reykjavík Sculpture Association.
