Dalir og hólar–2014–LITUR uses abandoned houses and open spaces at eclectic sites in western Iceland to exhibit art work. Litur (color) is the theme. The artists wish to engage with the inhabitants of this remote area, to contribute to local culture, share international contemporary art, and for everyone to enjoy the area’s spectacular scenery in the process.
The summer 2014 we had our first Seaweed Seminars, exploring vegetables of the sea–edible algae–along the coastline of Breiðafjörður with marine biologist Karl Gunnarsson, and afterwards enjoy the culinary possibilities of Icelandic seaweed with Kuniko Ibayashi Changchien. Kuniko is from Hokkaido, the seaweed capital of Japan, and she will be flying in from Tokyo to join us.
