RÍKI – flóra, fána, fabúla : KINGDOM – Flora, Fauna, Fable

In addition to The Making of Erró, the Reykjavík Art Museum – Hafnarhús – had the exhibit KINGDOM – Flora, Fauna, Fable when I visited. This exhibit explored contemporary art’s relationship to nature, with works by a large number of artists in a great variety of media. Works were both current and from the museum’s collection. It was a fascinating mix of observation and recording the natural world, use of natural objects, exploration of man’s interactions with and attitudes toward nature and much more. It’s neat to see the diversity of approaches and works that can be collected under a particular theme, and it appealed to my interests in art, nature and science.
