The Visitors is a celebration of creativity, community and friendship. The work transforms the gallery into a poignant and total musical experience.
The exhibition is part of Kiasma’s theme year centring around ideas of good life. Thoughts of giving, sharing, hospitality and encounters are emphasised in the programme.
Ragnar Kjartansson (1976, Reykjavík) combines video, painting, music, theatre, and performance in his art. Many of his works examine western cultural clichés through parody and repetition. Kjartansson studied painting at the Iceland University of the Arts, Reykjavík, and at the Royal Academy in Stockholm. He has exhibited widely around the world and he represented Iceland at the 2009 Venice Biennale. Kjartansson won the Ars Fennica Award in 2019.
