The Nordic Watercolour Museum
17.5 – 6.9 2015
This summer’s exhibition takes us to a volcanic island, situated where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Greenland Sea. Iceland’s barren landscape, its volcanoes, waterfalls, winds and cold never cease to fascinate. Nature’s elemental force creates harsh conditions for Iceland’s inhabitants. Their relationship with nature is characterised by both love and respect: qualities that have always coloured Icelandic culture.
The exhibition is a comprehensive presentation of Icelandic art. The emphasis is on contemporary art, but includes traces leading us back to its historical roots.
