The present conflict in Ukraine is once again a threatening reminder of the possibility of nuclear war.

At Korpúlfsstaðir, Rúrí has installed two works about the devastations of war: Elegy, 2000, a documentary film made in the aftermath of the Bosnian War, and Museum, 1987, an installation that imagines an archaeology of a future, uninhabited planet. These poignant works from the artist’s archive embody in a timely way many of the concerns about inhumanity, injustice, and destruction addressed throughout Rúrí’s important and groundbreaking artistic practice.
