FRACTAL
2021
Reykjavík Art Museum
Iceland.

6 archival inkjet prints
spatial intervention
FRACTAL was specifically made for the gallery of the Reykjavík Art Museum, elaborating on the role of museums and the points of view they offer. A series of photographs, takes the vantage point around a centralised pillar, characteristic for the galleries in the museum. Furthermore a few quadrangular pillars were added, disturbing the symmetry of the space. The eye discerns a difference from
one photograph to the other, as in actuality no two of them are taken in the same space. Five models were built at different scales and one photograph taken in each, printed with identical dimensions. This distortion of scale created, is bewildering as the proximity to the museum’s surface increases with the diminishing size of the models and the vantage point always beingdifferent.
