“Frontiers of Another Nature – Pictures from Iceland” is a unique selection of emerging and established Icelandic photo-media artists.These artists repeatedly draw from the landscape and environment in their work. The catalog and exhibition will introduce ambiguous environments in which the photographers themselves investigate and build visual narratives around the expanse of land, or the loss of it. Here the landscape often performs as metaphor for desire, alienation, magnificence and awe, tradition, irony and rebellion or achievement and deficit.
The exhibition is curated by Celina Lunsford, Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, and Dr. Christiane Stahl, Alfred-Ehrhardt-Stiftung, in cooperation with Inga Lára Baldvinsdóttir, National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavík, and María Karen Sigurðardóttir, Museum for Photography, Reykjavík, as part of the arts and culture program of the Fabulous Iceland – Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2011.
Participating artists: Katrín Elvarsdóttir, Icelandic Love Corporation, Einar Falur Ingólfsson, Haraldur Jónsson, Bára Kristinsdóttir, Ingvar Högni Ragnarsson, Hrafnkell Sigurdsson, Spessi, Pétur Thomsen and others.
