For “The Wondrous Deposits of Unfinished Threads”, Berglind Jóna Hlynsdóttir has produced
a new text work Fruits of Ember. To produce the text she walks through landscapes,
emotional registers and documents and wakes up memories of a memorable and partly
documented chance encounter she had with a man who called himself Moose. She revisits
thoughts and archived information produced in 2012 while working on her sound work The
Guiding Light in which a lamp was speaking about ways of seeing and illuminating. She
revisits embers ignited then. When reignited—memories change, they reilluminate, they
reimagine and recreate what they once dealt with. Perspective and history are never
content, new sparks and new perspectives are being ever ignited.
Project is sponsored by the Icelandic Visual Art FundThe.
Every single artwork produced for Sinopale holds within it a memory of the city and traces of the research and making processes that brought it about. Information collected by artists often materializes in a semi-abstract language of the art object; other, while not used, still becomes an integral part of collective knowledge-making.
