viðvera is a group exhibition featuring seven international artists currently in-residence at Listhús Artspace. The work on display offers diverse perspectives on Icelandic landscape including painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation.
The Icelandic proverb “glöggt er gests augað” highlights that a visitors view can have a freshness or clarity to it. In viðvera the group aims to make visible their presence within the landscape while also acknowledging the brief nature of their stay.
