Uncertain Matter explores boundaries between fact and fiction, challenges perception of time, our place in the universe and our future within it. The narrative is based on numerous conversations with amateur astronomers, astrophysicists and botanists from Reykjavik and the surrounding area. The story that unfolds gives a personal insight to the thoughts and reflections of the people the artists have spoken to.
The project evolved from a three month residency with The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists (SIM) in Reykjavik, Iceland (July-September 2016). The project is funded by Nordic Culture Point Mobility Funding.
Uncertain Matter has been exhibited in various ways to enable the participants to experience the passage of time in different settings.
Uncertain Matter was exhibited with Outvert Art Space & ArtsIceland / Isafjordur, Nordic House / Reykjavik, Deiglan Gallery / Akureyri and upcoming: ArtBox / Dublin.
