From Another Shore

For those of you in New York, there's an excellent opportunity to see an impressive selection of Icelandic artists at Scandinavia House (just four blocks south of Grand Central Station).
"This survey of contemporary Icelandic art from the National Gallery of Iceland includes sculpture, installation, painting, photography, and videos by 21 of Iceland’s most acclaimed artists: Þórdís Aðalsteinsdóttir, Olga Bergmann, Hildur Bjarnadóttir, Margrét H. Blöndal, Ólafur Elíasson, Steingrímur Eyfjörð, Gabríela Friðriksdóttir, Hulda Hákon, The Icelandic Love Corporation (Sigrún Hrólfsdóttir, Jóní Jónsdóttir, and Eirún Sigurðardóttir), Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir, Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir, Ragnar Kjartansson, Ólöf Nordal, Jón Óskar, Eggert Pétursson, Katrín Sigurðardóttir, Hrafnkell Sigurðsson, Magnús Sigurðarson, and Hulda Stefánsdóttir."
The show will run through to August 15, 2008.

I feel a visceral attraction to Iceland, although I have never really looked into the culture.

When one already suffers from light deprivation depression, why is one attracted to this type of place?

I also dream of living in Stockholm...
