Bored of this World - Archie Fitzgerald Exhibition

An exhibition of drawings by Archie Fitzgerald.
Investigating Icelandic Subconsciousness and 21st century confusion.

Opening Night 4-6pm 11th October

Followed by a DJ set at Sirkus from 11pm

My name is Archie Fitzgerald, I’m an artist originally from the UK but I’ve spent most of the last 7 years living in Berlin, Melbourne and for the last few months: Seydisfjordur.
I want to present to you a series of drawings I’ve done since living in this town inspired by my time here. Revelling between folklore, belief systems and modern mass confusion I have produced drawings that dwell in a static space of story telling, miscommunication and alternate realities. I entered a vortex of shifting consciousness that began with Icelandic ghost stories, swept through weeks of questioning the modern psyche and ends somewhere soon as I will be leaving this town in the next few weeks.
I would love to share these images and thoughts with you before I leave as you may have been a part of the inspiration.

I will provide some refreshments on the opening night and will have some zines for sale.

Then we party at Sirkus?

The exhibition will be up until October 18th.

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors 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 the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
