Double Happiness at Gerðarsafn Kópavogur Art Museum
My solo exhibition Double Happiness opened last week at Gerðarsafn Kópavogur Art Museum curated by Brynja Sveinsdóttir.
The series Double Happiness was created in China in 2010-2014. The series depicts a city on the edge of everyday and fiction with portraits of elderly people, nature in a man-made environment, living quarters and found sculptures. The solemn and unattainable settings of the photographs are contrasted by the title of the series, the double Chinese sign for happiness used as decoration and to mark celebrations.
