ORKA, NEW EXHIBITON AT THE VASULKA CHAMBER

orka exhibition

8.9.2017 – 22.4.2018 Listasafn Íslands

Steina (Steinunn Briem Bjarnadóttir Vasulka) became the first Icelandic woman artist chosen to represent the nation at the Venice Biennale, Vasulka Chamber is exhibiting her video-installation Orka (Force), the work Steina exhibited in the Icelandic pavilion in Venice in 1997.

In this work Icelandic nature appears to the viewer in a magnificent way, not least because of Steina’s digital processing of shots from Iceland. Steina seeks to communicate a different view on Icelandic nature in her works, a view where the viewer sees the landscape with eyes distinct from his own – the eyes of the camera.

The exhibition includes a display of parts of the archives of Vasulka Chamber. 

Steina and Woody Vasulka have taken great care of their legacy and preserved all of their data concerning their art and work. When the Vasulka Chamber was founded in late 2014, they donated a big part of their archives to the National Gallery of Iceland for preservation: original art works, sketch books, documentary films, a collection of books, photographs, exhibition programmes, awards, articles, posters and personal documents.
