Plato’s Parable of Light Astral Pavilion 3D, 2015




11.- 19. apríl, 2015


Kolbeinn Hugi is a typical island dwelling artist of a generation that emerged in the wake of the cataclysmic rift between art and artists, in the bleak neo-capitalist Reykjavík of modern times. Kolbeinn has recently studied with Edgar Cayce in the informal setting of dream state trances established by the great sleeping medium after his death in 1945. There, he absorbed the acute sensibility to time and space associated with Cayce’s Phantom Sculptures as set up in his Astral Pavillion. Kolbeinn’s work is heavily influenced by dreams and a firm belief in sensory relativity.

The work aims for the heart, not for the head.


His work has been exhibited widely around the western world, and is preserved in the collection vault of the National Gallery of Iceland.
