“Til Staðar” (transl. “Towards a Place”, “present”, “in-place”, “dedication to a place”)
Three land-interventions in rural Iceland (Ytri-Fagradalsá, Skarðsströnd, Hoffelsá, Hornafirði and Laxá, Þistilfirði), and three accompanying exhibitions in close vicinity to the sites.
Natural clay is extracted from banks of three rivers; processed, cast, stacked up and photographed, before being returned to the cavities from where it was extracted. The entire process takes place in-situ and in solitude, the mining, casting, photographing and reinstalling, within a radius of a few feet under an open sky. The clay is unfired and breaks down within days to its natural form.
The three accompanying exhibitions feature a photographic archive of the intervention, three framed photographs – one from each site – and a video of the process.
