A Visual Context: The Reclamation of the Icelandic Forest


A Visual Context – The Reclamation of the Icelandic Forest

Engage in Arboreal Discourse + Cultivate Ideas = Seed &  Grow Environmental Evolution

The conclusion of a Rannís Artistic Research Project by Katrina Jane Perry

 

“To see an Icelandic forest for the trees is an exercise in identity and identification; a man-made reclamation representing of a diversity of arboreal species both endemic and non-native. The forest is an ecological and cultural embodiment: mythicised, economised, and recreated by varying public and private sectors. How is the forest indicative of the relationship between Nature and the human condition specific to this island nation at this given cultural moment?”

 

This event coincides with a 7.5 km guided walk on Saturday the 21st at 10:30 between sculptural works made by Katrina Jane Perry and placed in the Heiðmörk Nature Reserve, Elliðavatnsbær 110 Reykjavík. Meet in the first parking area on left after crossing Suðurá bridge, allow 2 hours for walk; bring rain gear, gloves and water.
