Iceland Meets Scotland in The Arches, Glasgow
‘SEYDISFJ R U ’ is a site specific installation produced by artists Mhari Baxter and Melissa MacRobert as a result of their joint residency at Skaftfell Cultural Centre in Iceland last year.
Expanding from their previous exhibition in Edinburgh’s Old Town in March this year, the artists will present a series of light boxes in The Arches, Glasgow.
Baxter and MacRobert studied at the Listaháskóli Íslands (Iceland Academy of Arts), Reykjavík in 2006 and last year made a return journey to the small harbour town of Seyðisfjörður in the east fjords. It was in Seyðisfjörður that Baxter attended a workshop in conjunction with the Dieter Roth Academy- which honours the late German born Swiss artist who lived and worked extensively in Iceland.
Drawing upon their experience of the people and place ‘SEYDISF J R U ’ explores the life of this small town, so far flung from the hub of Reykjavík.
