Allar leiðir slæmar - All Paths Blocked // Skaftfell, Seyðisfirði

Allar leiðir slæmar er afrakstur námskeiðs sem útskriftarnemar við Listaháskóla Íslands, myndlistardeild, tóku þátt í aðdraganda sýningarinnar. Námskeiðið var haldð í samstarfi við Dieter Roth Akademíuna og stýrt af Birni Roth og Kristjáni Steingrími Jónssyni. Nemendur komu í fallegu veðri en áður en langt um leið skall óveður á. Allar leiðir út úr firðinum voru lokaðar. Sum þeirra neyddust til að leita á náðir bæjarbúa sem af góðmennsku sinni lánuðu þeim betri föt. Það verður áhugavert að sjá hvort þessar óvenjulegu aðstæður munu hafa áhrif á viðfangsefni sýningarinnar Allar leiðir slæmar í Skaftfelli - myndlistarmiðstöð Austurlands. Opið daglega 15:00-21:00, sjá www.skaftfell.is.

All Paths Blocked

Feb 3 - Apr 8

The exhibition All Paths Blocked presents the result of a workshop with the 3rd year students of the Fine Art Department of the Iceland Academy of the Arts. The two week long workshop was done in collaboration with the Dieter Roth Academy and is lead by Björn Roth and Kristján Steingrímur Jónsson. The weather was beautiful when the students arrived but it wasn’t long until the storm hit. All the roads out of the fjord were blocked. Some of them had to seek help from the locals, and they were generous enough to lend them better suited clothes. It will be interesting to see how these unusual circumstances will affect the subject matter of the students in the exhibition All Paths Blocked in Skaftfell - Center for Visual Art. Open daily from 15.00-21.00, for more info see www.skaftfell.is.

East Iceland

Towns & Villages

Each town in East Iceland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages the influence of North European neighbours is obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
