Synthetic Shorelines: Artists from Iceland and Los Angeles explore their relationship to self and coastal existence at Durden and Ray

 

Curated by Freyja Eilíf of Ekkisens Art Space, Reykjavik, Iceland

 

Artists: Sara Björg, Dani Dodge, Lana Duong, Freyja Eilíf, David Leapman, Katrína Mogensen, Sean Noyce, Kristín Morthens, and Ty Pownall

 

Synthetic Shorelines are a living thought and manmade boundary between elements, where textures and forms are combined in novel mindshapes.

In this exhibition, artists from different shores—Los Angeles and Reykjavík, Iceland—meet and lead an expedition where no boundaries exist except the self in its human condition.

 

In our gender-conscious, emotionally-trodden world of unexplained confines, these artists create a journey that merges two different shorelines and leads the

viewer further into the unknown: an oceanic bottom of subconsciousness where the otherworld takes over, where time is ripe to search for clues about our new-age-media, post-humanistic existence.

 

The artists exhibiting work at Synthetic Shorelines share use of abstract imagery while digging into dimensions of the self through processed-based and medium-specific art. Many of the artists share an animist spirituality through materials.

 

The opening will include a unique opportunity for viewers to merge with their inner computer spirit when Freyja Eilíf will lead them through a meditation into digital dimensions through a mixed media video installation. Sara Björg will conduct a choreographed performance, which includes objects that inspire movement, encouraging physical learning and offering a new perspective on play.

 

Also, Katrína Mogensen will host a performance related to her work on Nov. 17, 2018.
