Artists from Iceland and Los Angeles explore their relationship to self and coastal existence in Synthetic Shorelines at Durden and Ray
Curated by Freyja Eilíf of Ekkisens Art Space, Reykjavik, Iceland
Artists: Sara Björg, Dani Dodge, Lan Duong, Freyja Eilíf, David Leapman, Katrína Mogensen, Sean Noyce, Kristín Morthens, and Ty Pownall
Synthetic Shorelines are a living thought and manmade boundary between elements, where textures and forms are combined in novel mindshapes.
In this exhibition, artists from different shores—Los Angeles and Reykjavík, Iceland—meet and lead an expedition where no boundaries exist except the self in its human condition.
The opening will include a unique opportunity for viewers to merge with their inner computer spirit when Freyja Eilíf will lead them through a meditation into digital dimensions through a mixed media video installation. Sara Björg will present objects that trigger physical interaction. Her methods encourage physical learning and offer a new perspective on play.
Also, Katrína Mogensen will host a performance related to her work on Nov. 17, 2018.
