  • Titill er á ensku What we bring into becoming
  • Meistara
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    What we bring into becoming invites an audience to think about how monument and monumentality can be seen as unique and ever-changing phenomena that shape and are shaped by their environment.

    The exhibition explores how we may instil the phenomenological affects of surveying a landscape to the design of monuments. The aim is neither to reduce human perception of a natural phenomenon to a standard defined experience, nor to reminisce about a personal journey. This approach is rather that of solicitude towards what is before us. It aims to elicit a specific perspective on the performative potential of objects : we encounter steady objects that embrace and reveal the complexities of their host environment.

    The monument’s closeness to the ground activates our slow wanderings — its presence raises awareness of our own stature in a given site, highlighting the interchangeable roles of the viewer and the viewee in the spaces we inhabit. Such monuments, like inland rocks that may seem static, are empowered with a humbleness that enables their presence to act as a lever.

    The audience is invited to inhabit this momentary public space in small groups and to engage with a mini book inspired by encounters around the remains of Helgustaðanáma quarry and the presence of Steining in Icelandic architecture.
