An exhibition of works by visual artists and architects exploring the ambiguous and complex experience of the public space of the art gallery. The exhibition includes new works, some of which are based on historical material, reflecting ideas and plans that in many cases never became actual projects. An exploration of Hafnarborg, the building and it´s history, leads to discoveries that inspire new works revolving around as well as expanding the space of the museum.

Dar Al-Ma’mûn invites the inhabitants of Akara to a dialogue in darija with journalist and playwright Driss Ksikes about art in public space. The event will take place on the field next to Mud Brick Spiral by Elín Hansdóttir. The discussion will be followed by a dinner, everybody is welcome.
In the book, the subjective and objective aspects of the installation PATH come together, through the interaction of text and images. The book is suggestive of the role of memory when reconstructing experience; of how tactile elements fuse to form a whole, determined by the structure of the installation and the more abstract experiences of each individual encountering the work.

Where does the human impulse to take the world apart and put it back together come from? 2009 AIR Elín Hansdóttir tackles this impulse by reconstructing the built environment around her. In creating architectural interventions, Hansdóttir points to the incredible power that architecture has over our every day movements and interactions. Her work calls attention to the close ties between our understanding of the world and the material realities that surround us. 2009 AIR Scott Oliver uses the process of dismantling and reassembling to repurpose every day objects, making them useful in new ways. These artists will present site-specific work that illustrates how disassembling physical objects can help construct an idea of reality.

What is the relevance of adding a false facade to a building, the deception of which is revealed by a single step (pace) sideways ? What happens if an exhibition hall is obliterated? What happens when a room which you assume to be situated in, is in fact another room? How can we speak of a specific point of view, in light of its relative nature?
With her installation in hall A Elin Hansdottir eradicates the distinction between private and public space; those familiar places in our lives that are continually shifting as a consequence of changes in the nature of society and its values. The individual not only orients herself/himself in time, but also in relation to thoughts and memories, coordinates or motion in a land-scape. The exhibit is a threshold of sorts (of the museum, the home, public space) which delineates the frontier between disparate worlds.
