Þórunn Eymundardóttir: The Sky Over Libkovice
The Sky Over Libkovice
Þórunn Eymundardóttir (b. 1979) works in various media, such as installation, performance, video, audio, sculpture, and photography. The exploration of boundaries between the self and the other, and the elevation of everyday life are at the core of her practice. Eymundardóttir’s work is usually connected with creating a space or a moment, a form of situationism, often collaborating with other artists where the individual works create a certain flow or harmony with each other. Process and space are vital elements in her work.
Eymundardóttir holds a B.A. in visual art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts, and has studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She is based in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland, where she is a founding member of artist groups RoShamBo and the Fellowship of the Mountain Woman.
Into the Abyss of the Lignite Clouds
The focus of the expedition and workshops in the landscape around the Most Basin is on current changes in the heavily industrialized landscape, especially with regard to the loss of historical continuity, the transfers of geological layers and social structures, and current discussions about the abolition of territorial limits, as well as the potential for further degradation and exploitation of the landscape by extensive open cast mining.
Peter Cusack: Lignite Clouds (Sound Workshop)
A two-day workshop focused on the sound environments around the brown coal industry in Most Basin (North Bohemia). We used both listening and making field recordings. We also used photography and writing to compare the differences between the sound, visual and language perspectives on the area.
