Exhibition at the Living Art Museum in Reykjavik, 2017.

The Expedition to the Magic Mountain* (2013-2020) is an existential movement in time and space, exploring levels of consciousness, knowledge and sensibility, old and new. „We want to start exploring beyond the borders of self-assumed existential conditions, yet we need to acknowledge the past and present forces of creativity and destruction. We sense the project as a conception and birth of a single, fractured mind, individual works merge and flow together in collective, temporary spaces of experience. We explore it through art, literature, conversation, action, but never on the ordinary plane of each sphere, we leave it and at the same time remain, seeking what we can find within and without. We feel it is the conception, and birth of multiple minds, individual acts becoming collective, temporary spaces of experience. We excavate the wasteland of consumers, consumed with the endless craving for more, when nothing more is to be had.“
