One Comes as Another Goes, and They All Ride Swiftly
If it has been done, it can be done again – but it will always become something new.
Some years ago I was talking to a couple of women in their 90s. We talked about all sorts of things, but when we had discussed love and courtship for a short while, one of them jogged my arm gently and asked if I had a husband. I said I didn’t. “But then you must have a boyfriend?”. I didn’t know how to best answer question so I muttered some objections. Eventually I said that I had had a few but that none had stuck around for a very long time. She laughed at my awkwardness and told me not to worry about that too much, she then grinned and said: “One comes as another goes, and the all ride swiftly.”
Repetition in itself is easy. That which is repeated has been – otherwise it could not be repeated – but the very fact that it has been makes the repetition into something new and different.
From October 4th to November 29th a series of 24 solo shows by 3rd year students in Fine Art will be taking place in Laugarnes.
Each Thursday, solo exhibitions will be opened at three different locations in Laugarnes: Navel, in the middle of the building, The Cube on 2nd floor and Hulduland which is located on the north side of the building. Openings are from 17:00 - 19:00. The student's solo shows are a part of the seminar Professor's workshops in the supervision of Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir accompanied by teachers Unnar Örn and Sindri Leifsson.
