FJARLÆGÐ - Distance
10. 11. 2012 - 09. 12. 2012
 
In Distance Guðjónsson explores the basic elements of perception. He intertwines discontinuous images, sounds and movements, creating a complete structure, that challenges formalism and aesthetics.The coexistence and friction of visual perception with other forms of perception has formed Guðjónsson's aesthetics. The world of his body of work is distant but it physically pulls the audience to the core of the works, shivering with desire for contact with the significance of the fundamental shapes.

On the four works presented as one:

Distance, a voyage to a black hole, steel wires and cave wall. Veil, windy sands in Skeiðarársandur, the invisible wind creates a veil of sand grains covering the earth, Earth layers, stone tiles on unstable grounds, Conjunction, a close up of hands, steel circles, wire.
