Shade had accompanied and pursued mankind since the beginning – as an intimate and fatal companion. The cultural history of shade and the history of the civilization of mankind are inseparable. The mythical interpretation of the phases of the moon has fallen prey to the knowledge of the constellation of the heavenly bodies. Nevertheless, the interplay between the lightening and darkening of the earth’s satellite remains a eternal, attractive performance, like the sunset which celebrates the approaching darkness.

Light and shade are great antagonists. Numerous are the pictures and concepts relating to shadow, numerous too are the artistically, academically and religiously motivated approaches and appropriations. People always try to express, physically and metaphorically, to describe the world -- or to transfigure it. In doing so, shade suffers from a lesser appreciation than the light which brings it into relief. The most significant interpretation of this subordinate position must have reached its first apogee in Plato's cave simile, and further manifested itself in C. G. Jung's analytic psychology -- in which shade is one of the archetypes. The ambivalence of shade passes from the fear-precipitating analysis of a X-ray up to the protection sought against the torrid sun.

The (visual) person needs, looks and produces shade. The arts, like painting, graphics, stage, film, photo, to name a few. are at first glance, technically, shadow disciplines. The visual adaptation of these concepts is a celebration of the shade.

The SHADOW project presents 13 artistic attempts by people who seek involvement in the different levels of interpretation of the subject; dedicating themselves to the qualities, conditions and manifestations of this common phenomenon.

Raunveruleikatékk - sýning á Listahátíđ 2010 í miđborg Reykjavíkur.

Daníel Ţorkall Magnússon, Eggert Jóhannesson, Haraldur Jónsson, Ieva Epnere, Hlynur Hallsson, Ingvar Högni Ragnarsson, Kristleifur Björnsson, Libia Castro og Ólafur Ólafsson, Óskar Hallgrímsson, Silja Sallé og Spessi. 

Sýningarstjóri Ćsa Sigurjónsdóttir

Ţegar myndir eru fluttar úr listrýminu yfir á veggi borgarinnar, ţá verđa ţćr ágengar og kalla fram viđbrögđ vegfarenda sem geta varla látiđ ţćr fram hjá sér fara. Einnig vakna spurningar um virkni ljósmynda, um siđferđi, og um persónuvernd, um inngrip og áhrif mynda. Hvađ má sýna og hvar? Hvađ má sjást og hvađ ţarf ađ fela? Almannarýmiđ virđist hlutlaust, en er í raun jafn viđkvćmt og áhorfandinn sjálfur. Hvar eru mörkin, - ţessi hárfína lína sem gerir ţađ ađ verkum ađ mynd truflar ţegar hún skiptir um ham? Hvernig getur augnabliksmynd orđiđ ađ verki? Heimild hluti af nýrri frásögn? Hvenćr hćttir fréttamynd ađ vera frétt, og breytist í yfirlýsingu um ástand eđa skođanaskipti?

Á sýningunni Raunveruleikatékk er fjallađ um ţessar spurningar, um ágengni ljósmynda, og flökt ţeirra á milli ólíkra merkingarheima myndlistar og fjölmiđla. Í verkunum er tekist á viđ daglegt umhverfi, atburđi líđandi stundar, viđ sjálfsagđa hluti sem verđa álitamál, en einnig hversdagstöfra í sinni einföldustu mynd. Hér mćtast ljósmyndarar og myndlistarmenn sem eiga ţađ sameiginlegt ađ nota ljósmyndatćknina á skapandi hátt og snúa hversdagsleikanum upp í fagurfrćđi dagsins í dag. 

Sýningin Raunveruleikatékk opnar umrćđuna um virkni ljósmynda í almannarýminu og flökt miđilsins á milli merkingarheima. Sýningin myndar ákveđna gönguleiđ sem á rćtur í rúntinum. Ţetta er leiđ sem er samgróin borginni og kveikir spurningar um venjur og hefđbundna sýn. Markmiđ sýningarinnar er ađ brjóta upp vanann, varpa fram spurningum og kveikja umrćđur, - taka áhorfandann lengra, í eiginlegri og óeiginlegri merkingu, á stađi sem hann ţekkir ekki eđa lítur framhjá daglega. Mörkin á milli heimildaljósmyndunar, fréttaljósmyndunar og listljósmyndunar eru ţurrkuđ út í ţeim tilgangi ađ brjóta upp hefđbundnar skilgreiningar og landamćri sem móta sjónrćnar venjur og listskilning vegfarenda sem áhorfenda.

 

What happens when images are moved from the art space into the public realm?

Reality Check is an outdoor exhibition of works which are dealing with everyday environments, recent events, matters of fact that become matters of concern; the enchantment of the ordinary towards the extra-ordinary. The exhibition brings together works by contemporary Icelandic artists and photographers, who use photography as a creative space; contributing to the construction of our mental realities of today. In this exhibition, the works trace a path they become a place where things can be discussed.

Curated by Ćsa Sigurjónsdóttir.

The public space seems neutral but is in fact as sensitive as the spectator himself. What happens when images are moved from the art space into the public realm? They can become aggressive and provoke reaction among spectators, who can hardly ignore them. What can be shown and where?  What can be seen and what is to hide? Where are the limits, this fine line that turns a snapshot into a work, a documentary into a new narrative, a press-photo into a statement?

In the exhibition Reality Check, artists and photographers are dealing with everyday environments, recent events, matters of facts that become matters of concern; the enchantment of the ordinary towards the extra-ordinary. The exhibition brings together works by contemporary artists and photographers, who use photography as a creative space, as a part of installation or documentary, turning its everydayness into our contemporary aesthetics.

The exhibition creates a walk, which has its roots in the way people created popular itinerary in the centre of Reykjavik. The walk has an attachment to the place and questions daily habits and a traditional image of the city. The aim is to break up habits, stir and question, take people further to places they might ignore or look past every day. Limits between documentary, press-photography and art photography have been blurred, in order to challenge genres and question our habits of seeing.
