Today is a new day, new week, new month! Here in the LungA School, this means that we have also begun a new workshop – and we have a new program for you!
We are very happy to have Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen and her daughter Liva visiting us this week. Lilibeth is a performance and installation artist currently based in Copenhagen and she is in charge of the Origin workshop, in which we will dive into our roots in the search for our most basic being.
We will work through biologically and geologically processed materials and mysticism, through sounds, languages and physical impressions and expressions of the body. We will leave Seyðisfjörður and from here zoom in on the core, as close as we can get to it, using mediums like performance, painting, installation and sound art, as abstract tools of exploration.
This week Seyðisfjörður will also host a large film crew, who are in town to shoot some scenes for a tv-show when the ferry is in dock. Almost 200 people are arriving and they will be all over town, taking up all the beds in the hotels and having meals in Herðubreið with us and the school kids. We have had to pack down the studio to make room for all the people, but luckily we can still use the theater.
Besides our workshop program, we will have a conversation with Lilibeth, we will have lunch beat, we will go to an exhibition in Heima, we will go to an exhibition in Skaftfell and we will of course have our own exhibition on Friday!
