Tölt is an art exhibition entirely dedicated to the Icelandic horse, presented through diverse media such as photography, sculpture, video, animation, design and fashion.
The Icelandic horse carries a heritage of a tradition. It forms a significant part of the cultural identity of Icelanders. Wild in the Icelandic highlands, tamed for work and pleasure, transported and used for riding in new and different environments - horses are for Icelanders a concrete example of an ancestral culture. They embody a profound relationship to nature and are an inexhaustible inspiration - richly represented in Iceland’s literature, poetry and contemporary arts.
