Forgotten View


Coloured and/or clear double-paned glass is a material that Kristján started using in the works around the year 2000. The work titles and the ambiguous play with language are an integral part of the content, such as Baby-Blue View (1998 – 1999), Dream View (1999) and Red Painting with Clear View (2000). The work Forgotten View is from this time period, first exhibited at Kjarvalsstaðir in 2001. The material of the work is double-paned glass, the work lives on as an idea and its appearance varies depending on the unclaimed orders in the glass workshop at any one time.
