OCTOBER GROUP SHOW
[ˈLAu̯RA] Public event
Time and Location

SIM Gallery, Hafnarstræti, 16 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
A group exhibition by guest artists that have been staying at the SÍM Residency in Seljavegur and Koprpúlfsstaðir in October 2019. The works at the exhibition will represent the results of research the artists have been working on for the past month or longer. The artists come from various places around the world and work with different mediums. The exhibition will take place at SIM Gallery.
One afternoon during a conversation at the swimming pool, one of our residents, Laura, told another resident - that if she will ever have kids, dogs, or other pets, she would like to name them after herself - Laura. Or even convince other people to change their names and passports to become Laura. This art project would extend to her and other people's personal lives by changing and copying identities. By naming the exhibition Laura [ˈlau̯ra], we have started her project. We are questioning our identities as artists as well as tourists, and ultimately as persons.
