Erró - Collage

18 September 2010 - 21 August 2011

Hafnarhús

The exhibition offers, for the first time, an opportunity to discover a holistic selection of Erró‘s collages from Reykjavik Art Museum‘s Erró collection.

On show are 130 collages which Erró began donating to the museum in 1989, spanning the artist‘s creative career ever since his first experiments with the media at the Icelandic School of Arts and Crafts in Reykjavík in the early fifties.

After cultivating the collage for 15 years there came a turning point in Erró‘s creative form of expression when he started to transform his pictures into paintings; a method which turned out to be momentous and became the key to Erró‘s creative expression ever since. In it the collage gained a dual status; as a collage and as a painting.

The exhibition is structured time sequentially and sheds a light on how particular collages laid the foundation for Erró‘s paintings.

Curated by Danielle Kvaran.
