Green Is Gold

Á Lunga ætlar Green is Gold, og þeir 4 listamenn sem eru því tengdir, að sýna hvert fyrir sig verk sem rannsaka og vísa í félagsleg og efnahagsleg málefni í litlum samfélögum. Þessi málefni eru lituð af utanaðkomandi viðhorfum til einangraðs samfélags. Þeirra samþykki á landfræðilegum hömlum og náttúrulegum þáttum, breytilegar aðferðir, staðbundnum og alheims samskiptum í litlu sjálfstæðu samfélagi og .glöggskyggni einangraðs fólks á fjarlægðir og tíma og áhrif þess ástands á samfélagið. Verkefnið samanstendur af ljósmyndum, vídeói og skúlptúr innsetningum sem unnin verða úr efni sem leitað verður efti á svæðinu. Sem aftur vísa til meginefnis verkefnisins, lituð persónuleika hvers listamanns fyrir sig.

’There are now new experiences of space and time; new tensions between globalism and regionalism, socialism and consumerism, reality and spectacle; new instabilities of value, meaning and identity – a dialect between past and future. How are we to understand these?’

MAPPING THE FUTURES: Local cultures and global change

Economy sustaining the community or community sustaining the economy?

For the LungA Festival 2012 Green Is Gold, and it’s four affiliated artists, wish to each present individual works that examine and reference social and economical issues in small communities. These issues include the outside perception of a community existing in apparent isolation, its acceptance of geographical constraints and the natural elements, varying methods of local and global communication in a small independent society and the perspicacity of isolated peoples regarding distance and time and the effects such conditions have on the society. The works will consist of photography, video and sculptural installations and will incorporate locally sourced and found materials, which reference the highlighted issues and distinctly characterise each artist’s relevant practice.

Green is Gold is a Copenhagen based non-profit project space and was opened in 2011 by Danish artists Amalie Bønnelycke Lunøe and Ditte Knus Tønnesen. The space focuses on exhibiting artists with progressive practices that are independent of trends and tendencies in art.

1,000,000 Acres Of Sky is an exhibition based on a combination of previous and site-specific works made on location in Seydisfjordur. Artists/curators Amalie Bønnelycke Lunøe (DK) and Ditte Knus Tønnesen (DK) and the artists Asle Lauvland Pettersen (N) and Keith Allen (UK).
