Jorma Puranen | Icy Prospects

Opening: 06 September 2019, 6-9 pm
Exhibition: 07 September - 16 November 2019

'The Arctic is often associated with an idea of immensity, infinity and distance that is an invitation to discover Otherness and Elsewhere. It likewise becomes an instrument for the cultural definition of self. "Icy Prospects” is associated with new concepts of space, mobility and distance that have emerged in cultural studies. I was interested in the possibility of a cultural space created by different fates, places, histories and encounters, a fictive historical world. "Icy Prospects” is a kind of fabric of facts, fantasy, geographical imagination and intellectual landscapes.’

Ragna Róbertsdóttir | Configured Landscapes

Ragna Róbertsdóttir | Configured Landscapes

Opening: 22 November 2019, 6 – 9 pm
Exhibition: 23 November 2019 – 8 February 2020 

Persons Projects proudly presents Ragna Róbertsdóttir’s first solo exhibition Configured Landscapes. This collection of works, from the 1980’s to the present, reveals the diversity as well as the tactile sensitivity that Róbertsdóttir has continuously exhibited throughout her illustrious career. Her minimalistic roots reach back to the early 1980’s, beginning with her earliest experimentations with textiles and organic materials that were inherently common within her Icelandic environment. Róbertsdóttir’s approaches her work methodically, leaving each element used, enough space to define its own presence of being.
