The installation contains sculptures and projections of seven dancers who developed material in collaboration with the choreographer on the concept of continuity. Sóley also collaborated with Friðrik Margrétar-Guðmundsson who composed an audio work for the installation.
“This past year I have been taken by the idea of continuity in our daily lives with patterns and rhythms of a continuous nature surfacing in my surroundings. Wondering which elements are continuous by nature and which have the concept of continuity forced upon them.”
The duration of the work is 30 minutes although it runs on a continuous cycle with viewers welcome to come and go as they please.
