SVO AUÐS VERÐI GÆTT
The visual artist Sigurður Guðjónsson presents a series of violent, interwoven events and actions on mortality, dreams and spirituality. Fusing currents in the Icelandic death metal scene with personal visual art practice, the artist peels the layers of an underground scene; in which he was an active participant as a band member of Cranium. The project Svo auðs verði gætt is made in close collaboration with renowned artists, writers and musicians: Sororicide, Cranium, Severed Crotch, Biogen, Ófeigur Sigurðsson, Bjarni Grímsson, Magnús Árnason, Úlfur Hansson(Swords of Chaos) and Bjarni Klemenz.
THE LIVING ART MUSEUM
The Living Art Museum (Nylo) is an internationally acclaimed venue for contemporary visual art in Iceland. This reputation is founded upon our commitment to the presentation of innovative work by Icelandic and international artists. The very distinctive character and history of Nylo have cemented it’s reputation as a unique place to produce and experience contemporary art.
The Living Art Museum was founded by a group of twenty artists in 1978 and was the first non-profit artist-run organization in Iceland. Through the last 30 years it has stayed true to its original goals; to create a platform for progressive exhibitions and critical discussions on experimental art practice.
