This exhibition allows us to notice microorganism through painting and embroidery.
The paintings in this exhibition are from my walks in the city of Reykjavik. There are a lot of different lichens in the city, so many that we might miss them when we walk by. Making the paintings is a form of re showing what has been living with us in the same place, house, or city but that we might miss due to our daily lives. The embroidery is a two-meter-long fabric with pictures of lichens that are being embodied as a form of connection with other
