HAMSKIPTI

Vernissage: 29th of October 2011, Hafnarborg (Hafnarfjörður)

I want to introduce you to some of Iceland’s most promising artists.
Saga Sig; a London-based fashion photographer (and a world known photo blogger) and Hildur Yeoman; a fashion designer and illustrator. For you who haven´t heard of them, let´s go on a journey — a visual journey filled with dreams and fairy tales.

Photographs by Konsthopp

The young and talented team has been joining forces for the last couple of years, creating mystical and adventurous worlds together. Their previous work includes mixing videos and photographs with illustration and installation, where fashion is usually the focal point.
About their previous collaboration in the acclaimed Garden of Enchantment at Kling & Bang last year, Saga Sig said:
“We combined our forces, my photography and her illustrations to create a magical world where our own tales inspired by greek mythology and russian fairy tales are combined in an icelandic winter wonderland”.
Saga Sig and Hildur Yeoman recently participated in The Nordic Fashion Biennale in Seattle. The highlight of the Biennale was an exhibition, Looking Back to Find our Future, curated by a New York-based Icelandic artist, Hrafnhildur Arnardottir. The show included fashion and jewelry from Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Sweden, and Norway…
… and talking about a highlight, Hamskipti (Metamorphosis) was no ordinary show. The colourful crowd didn´t spoil the eminent ensemble either. And it must be admitted that it was far more fashionable than we are ever used to on “traditional” art openings.
Date: 29th of October – 30th of December 2011
Artists: Saga Sig and Hildur Yeoman
Place: Hanfnarborg, Strandgata 34, Hafnarfjörður
