Art is usually there to be looked at, from a safe distance. Shipwreck is an opportunity to occupy territories of devastation and to make a home in a strange and changed world. Cultural, social, economic, and environmental crises are terrains of uncertain governance and this project explores how these terrains might be inhabited and how meaning might be sought and made.

Shipwreck is an exploration of art as something to be lived in and among. Six North American artists have brought with them ruins of potential futures of ecological, political, and cultural crisis. Six Icelandic artists were then tasked with making a home among these ruins.

The exhibition will be open and available from June 16 until June 25, 2024, noon to 8 pm daily.

Join us on June 16, 2024, for the exhibition opening to step into this strange world of devastation, joy, and reinhabitation at SÍM Hlöðuloftið Korpúlfsstaðir, Thorsvegur 1, 112 Reykjavik.

5 pm – 7 pm: exhibition opening with refreshments 7 pm onwards: performance, music, dancing, more refreshments
