“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.” – Orhan Pamuk.

The exhibition Ghost Dog in the Old Children School in Eskifjörður comprises 12 photographs of Samoyed dogs.

The ghost-like Samoyed – was originally bred to hunt, haul sledges, and herd reindeer.

Who is this dog? The dog within us? The white Ghost dog is now in Eskifjörður.

Bjargey Ólafsdóttir studied photography painting and mixed media at Iceland Academy of the Arts and Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, and screenwriting and directing at Binger Filmlab, Amsterdam. She works with all media, resulting in works that often are ironic, sometimes violent or sinister, drawing on obsession and fantasies of contemporary life. Her characters are often subjects lost in familiar yet alienating circumstances. She has made a number of critically acclaimed films and exhibited her work internationally in venues such as The Reykjavík Museum of Art, The Reykjavik Museum of photography, The Living Art museum in Reykjavik, Kunstverein, Munich, KunstWerke, Berlin, Galaria Traschi in Santiago, Chile and Färgfabriken Norr in Östersund, Sweden.

Ghost dog is produced by The Culture Centre in Fjarðabyggð.

The book Rófurass is connected to Ghost dog and is available on the VOID website:
