The Here You Are theme year kicks off with a show by internationally renowned New York-based Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, aka Shoplifter, with a show called Nervescape VIII.
Mounted in the fifth-floor galleries, the show is a furry installation that envelopes the viewer in its embrace, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the touchable piece.
In the soft and colourful art space, you can forget the world for a moment and simply sit back or enjoy a concert or a panel discussion. The exhibition urges the audience to participate, relax, hang out, share experiences or to just blow away the cobwebs from one’s everyday routine.
