The Tub Art Space - B T W N L N S
If you'll visit Þingeyri this summer, make sure to pass by the abandoned house, where realities from the past enter close conversations with the art.In B T W N L N S, Litten Nystrøm and Carissa Baktay extract material and tales from The Tub and its surroundings and gather their findings in a collaborative exhibition. Drawing on the themes ‘otherworlds and afterlife’, the artists ponder how elements of the past stretch into the present and continue to the unknown. The house forms as a space of absence and presence, where fictive truths distort our perceptions and move us into the question: what awaits beyond reality? The art objects integrate and collide, encouraging the spectator to search for their own findings, glooming traces, and unaligned symmetries. Supported by Orkubú Vestfjarða. The Tub Art Space  Whether through they're rustic beauty or mystic allure -- people are subconsciously drawn to abandoned houses. The Tub Art Space is a chance to enter such a house, standing cold and raw with no electricity and no running water. The house was built in 1910 at Brekkugata 8 in Þingeyri, and is preserved with the original characteristics and in-built interior. Left uninhabited and untouched for more than two decades, the house was transformed into a gallery in 2019, as a sub venue under The Factory Art Exhibition in Djupavik. From this year, the gallery serves as an independent venue. The vision is for visual artists to engage, perceive and go into a close dialogue with the history of the house, its architecture and the surroundings. By integrating rural environments and local aspects, the project aims at making art accessible and visible to all despite demography and remote living.
June 14. - 16.
