Scent workshop for Young People (12 years +) Sunday 26 May 2 p.m.

Visual artists Harpa Rún Ólafsdóttir and Áslaug Íris Katrín Friðriksdóttir lead a scent workshop for young people next Saturday 26 May at 2 p.m. The workshop is held in relation to the exhibition Interval and will play around scent in creative ways.
At the heart of the exhibition is a fragrance intended to embody the essence of a museum of the distant future. Maack and Arason present this fragrance as a three-dimensional and architectural experience, a period-room installation which remains flexible in form in order to acknowledge the elusive, atmospheric, and temporal qualities of scent.

Interval, Maack and Arason’s first collaboration, builds on Maack’s background as a visual artist working with scent and on Arason’s interest in transforming the role of exhibition space. Here Maack and Arason conceive of the gallery as a setting within which the audience can actively experience the fragrance and the loose series of subjective interpretations contributing to its development and presentation.

The workshop takes place in Icelandic
