They will be part of the outdoor installation on the 14th September. The workshop is free and everyone can participate. Language: Icelandic, English, Danish.

A 20 foot container as Art-Laboratory
The initiator of this extraordinary Art-project is the Danish/German/ Greenlandic Art Group “Tura Ya Moya”, who specialised in site specific installations partly run on oldschool analogue slide projectors. With the support from Nordic Culturepoint, NAPA Greenland, Eimskip and others they redesigned a prototype 20 foot standard cargo container into a small Art- and projection-laboratory.

Spirit of northern places
The project is visiting 12 settlements and towns in Scandinavia and Greenland. Divided into 12 chapters Chapter 1-2 took place in Norway north of the Polar circle and chapter 3-4 took place in with the museums in Árnessýsla as partners, now Nordic House will be the last chapter in Iceland before heading onto Greenland and later to culture capital Aarhus 2017 and in 2018 Berlin.
