Art Festival (continued)

Selected images from the Art Festival:

"Atlantis" by Tea Makipaa and Halldor Ulfarsson. It is dropped in the water of the Tjornin Lake in the center of Reykjavik.

"SMART" by Andrea Maack. Blow-out of the pencil drawing, accompanying her perfume.

Unknown (for me) artist. Was too tired to ask question or search for explanations, so just snap a photo.

Paul Armand Getter "Tribute to Death." The story behind these creations - the "portrait" is the image of a young woman who died young. The sculpture piece in front of it is the lava rock from Iceland, smeared in the strawberry juice and sprinkled with rose petals(the latter was done by the artist and his two assistants as a performance.)

"Melting lava" by Halldor Asgeirsson

"Landscape" by Ernesto Neto. He is well known Brazilian artist, who creates abstract installations from stretchable nylon. His other pieces that I discovered on the I-net are very interesting - due to the size and colouring, this one - not so much.

"Never again" by Monica Bonvicini. It was a pity that I didn't manage to make photos with people rocking on these "chairs."
