In the exhibition, Lilja Birgisdóttir, Hertta Kiiski and Katrín Elvarsdóttir invoke a tender, coaching warmth towards environments neglected and at the brink of loss. By focusing in on the beauty in the found, in the renewed, they hope to awaken an urgent appreciation for the delicate state our deteriorating world is in. Working in the face of climate change, these three artists employ the photographic medium and a sculptural, sensory focus to environments which call for a nurturing attention.
The artists work in collaboration and yet singularly, their thought-processes distinct yet subtly intertwined. Using elements of smell, sound, and physicality, the exhibition space is experienced in a fully sensory fashion, connecting us to our natural environment, colorful and alive. There, these three artists call attention to the implications of our wasteful practices.
