I haven’t been to this museum yet – the weather has been a bit too brutal for a softie from Albury Wodonga (we have witnessed locals walking out in the weather, with dogs and children) – brrrrr!
However, yesterday there was an exhibition opening at ArtsIceland gallery space and it was about driftwood. Evidently driftwood to Iceland comes from Russia and has come in great quantities over the years – so much so that driftwood was used in the rafters of buildings for some time. The change in the volume of driftwood is now linked to climate change. The website and the film trailer are extremely interesting. I had a conversation with one of the artists yesterday, and today, after looking at their site, would like to have a closer contact. The main artist/researchers are from Berlin and are on an arts residency in another town here in the Westfjords.
