HYLDÝPI, the Icelandic translation of abyss, is an immersive exhibition where the audience can listen and observe, not just by standing, but by moving and experiencing the space.
The work wants to speak and nurture human perceptions and relationships, in a physical/non-physical space, where the feeling of time and memory is still connected to human feelings.
In the face of the monstrous, irresponsible iniquity of contemporary times, human beings increasingly need to rediscover a sense of fraternity and humanity.
As Nietzsche's lesson in “Jenseits von Gut und Böse”, where darkness and emptiness of the void are present, the sense of negativity is not necessarily portrayed as a distortion or loss, instead potentially showing the inner side of a person and perhaps a more intimate self-knowledge.
HYLDÝPI is Breath

Camilla Cerioni (1994 Ancona, Italy), works with sensory perceptions, starting from the abstraction of musical languages. She speaks in an interdisciplinary manner, where body movement, painting and music are interconnected. These mutual dependent forms of expression share common elements and nurture each other. Camilla's performance aims to bridge the gap between mediums, incorporating diversified elements to create a multidimensional sensory experience; aiming to portray visible and invisible experiences, fascinated by the Nordic sensitivity, given by the approach with a strong and powerful nature. She studied at the Conservatorio Statale di Musica “G.B. Pergolesi” di Fermo, Italy (double bass preaccademic 2014 – 2018 and jazz singing preaccademic 2018-2019). She had her Bachelor’s degree in Painting at the “Accademia di Belle Arti di Macerata”, Italy (2017-2021). She showed her works in Finland (workshop residence, 2018) and in Lithuania (study mobility - Vilniaus dailės akademija, 2020). She participated and performed in several exhibitions in Italy, including her solo in Ancona (AN) “Reflection”(2022) and in Castelnuovo Rangone (MO) “PA.CE con Chiesi: Le dimensioni della pittura.”(2022), with the painter Andrea Chiesi. She performed in Iceland at Plan B Festival, Borgarnes (2021), at Rýmd, Reykjavík (2022), at Flak in Patreksfjörður (2023) and at The Dark Music Days Festival, Reykjavík (2024), with the ensemble “Skerpla”. Currently she’s finishing her Master in Fine Art at Listaháskóli Íslands, Reykjavík, Iceland.
