Origin 2013

Rakete Rinnzekete. Group exhibition. The Nordic House, Reykjavík, Iceland. 20. July – 25. August 2013.

The piece Origin is made from wool dyed with stone moss from Réttarholt on Reykjanes peninsula where my mothers side of the family is from. The moss gives a color that is close to a particular red hair color, which is common in that side of the family. I find it interesting that this same color is hidden inside the moss on the ocean cliffs outside of the farm. There seems to be a connection between the people that have lived there for decades and the moss that has also been there for decades, breathing the same air and nourished by the same soil.
