Event of the Week: I Hate Nature

Reykjavík Art Museum – Kjarvalsstadir Exhibition

Martha Schwartz – I Hate Nature

Martha Schwartz is one of the world’s best-known living landscape architects. Her installation in the courtyard at Kjarvalsstadir alludes both to the artist’s experience of nature as explored in the exhibition “Dreams of the Sublime and Nowhere” and to the debate over environmental protection versus exploitation.

Martha Schwartz has created myriad works in urban settings, continually blazing new trails to discover and harness new possibilities offered by landscape. Schwartz is a visual artist as well as a landscape architect and in her work she seeks to honour both art forms equally.

The main sponsor of this exhibition is Ingibjörg Kristjánsdóttir. The work was executed in collaboration with the Association of Icelandic Landscape Architects on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the Association’s founding.

On display until  July 20.
