í bláinn’ is a multidisciplinary art project on immigration in
Iceland, presenting a poetic and sensitive approach to notions of
Pollux started ‘Vestur í bláinn’ as an experimental music
project, which combines voices of immigrants and refugees in Iceland
with his own musical take on the subject.
Claire Paugam and Julius
Pollux then teamed up to expand the project into an art exhibition
and elevate political concerns within a poetic perspective,
encouraging a humanistic and empathetic look on people’s stories,
situations, emotions and backgrounds.
artists were invited to engage in a dialogue with the music pieces by
creating the ten artworks that are presented in this exhibition.
The exhibition took place in ten public locations in
Reykjavík from September 3rd to September 30th 2020.
í bláinn aimed to be a space for voices, different languages and
stories of people from diverse origins, that are rarely heard in the
context of arts or the public in general.
you for your curiosity, thank you for listening.
