Im Rahmen der Ausstellung »hafið – Reflections of the Sea« spricht der Künstler Finnbogi Pétursson mit seinem Galeristen Timothy Persons über seine Licht-Klang-Installationen. Teil der Ausstellung ist unter anderem eine Installation im Innenhof der Botschaftsanlage, die eines der Wasserbecken und den Monolithen an der Fassade der Kgl. Norwegischen Botschaft nutzt.


Finnbogi Pétursson, one of Iceland's most prominent artists, will discuss his immersive installation in the courtyard of the Nordic Embassies as well as his other works, with professor and gallerist Timothy Persons.

Artist Finnbogi Pétursson is known for his pioneering in melding sound and light into transformative experiences. His innovative and eccentric oeuvre hinges upon the conceptual treatment and fusion of sound, space, and material. Finnbogi’s work often uses implements that produce electronic or acoustic sounds to form sculptures themselves. Many of his installations bridge contemporary technology and elemental phenomena. His work also evokes experiences that cannot be attributed to visual or auditory perception but rather a combination, perhaps transcendence of the senses. Exhibited around the world Finnbogi's works are found in international public and private collections. He represented Iceland at the Venice Biennale with his monumental sound installation Diabolus.

Timothy Persons, the principle architect behind the Helsinki School, is the director of Gallery Persons Projects in Berlin and adjunct professor at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland. His curatorial experience ranges from senior curator for Kulturhuset in Stockholm to having been Senior Curatorial Advisor to the Danish National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen as well as KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki.
