render & react: approaching a subconscious sensory system


Anna Rún Tryggvadottir (Reykjavík, Islande)


February 27th - March 29th, 2014




Installation

February 27th – March 29th, 2014
Opening & Guided Tour: Thursday February 27th at 5 pm

render & react: approaching a subconscious sensory system is an immersive installation, a moving “forest” created from a series of organic sculptures trickling liquids onto islands made of sheets of paper positioned close to the ground. Gradually, the space and the objects themselves are transformed as the liquids puddle and drip, run together and create textures. An indoor landscape takes shape.

A continuous and unpredictable process, render & react is the product of the material itself, which shapes the installation through its own force and nature. Time, however, and the space itself – the architecture and ventilation of the site – have an equal influence on the flow and appearance of the work. Last but not least are the visitors themselves. Their movements can have a greater or lesser effect on the installation.

The coloured water will gradually flow throughout the entire time of the exhibition, following a precise timetable that gives the work the necessary time to develop as the days pass – a slow, deliberate and contemplative experience that is constantly changing.

The Icelandic-born artist Anna Rún Tryggvadottir studies art theory and philosophy, but her work also draws on her experience as a set designer for theatre. A graduate of the Icelandic Academy of the Arts, she has shown her work in Iceland, Germany and Canada. Render & React is her first solo exhibition.

Anna Rún Tryggvadottir gratefully acknowledges support from The Guðmunda Andrésdóttir fund, Center For Icelandic Arts and the Muggur Travelfund.
