Gerðarsafn – Sculpture/Sculpture
30.09.2023 – 07.01.2024
Join us for the opening of the exhibition Sculpture/Sculpture Saturday 30th September at 4 p.m. in Gerðarsafn Kópavogur Art Museum. Ásdís Kristjánsdóttir mayor of Kópavogur will open the exhibition.
The exhibition series Sculpture/Sculpture is now held for the fifth time in Gerðarsafn, where an attempt is made to explore the position sculpture holds in modern times. The series explores the development of three-dimensional art, with references to the pioneering work of Gerður Helgadóttir (1928-1975) within Icelandic sculpture. The title refers to Sculpture/Sculpture/Sculpture, a 1994 group exhibition of 29 artists at Kjarvalsstaðir which offered an important overview of Icelandic sculpture at the time.
This fifth exhibition in the series at Gerðarsafn is different from the previous ones as it seeks to assess the status of modern sculpture with works from ten different artists. There is no single common denominator with all the participating artists, but the discourse between their works unveils interesting references to sculpture’s status as an art medium, its possibilities and its relevance to the present times.
