Vernissage: 5th of May 2012, Hlaðan (Vogar)
Hildur the sisters union opened the exhibition “Close” recently at Hladan. The title refers to the sisters’ relationship and the relationship between the viewer and the artists but the artists; Gunnhildur and Brynhildur are sisters by blood.
Their close relationship reflected in every corner of the exhibition. The atmosphere was therefore very intimate and homelike. Guests could participate and interact by touching, smelling and talking.

The exhibition is inspired by the sister´s surreal ideas where adventures can take place. Mannequins become furniture, fury kitchen utensils contain poems and clothes become art.
Our readers should know Gunnhildur Thordardottir from her previous exhibition “Losun / Emission.” Her sister; Brynhildur Thordardottir designs unique wool clothes and other items under the name; Lúka Art and Design.
I´m going to end this entry with this poet from the exhibition:
They both laughed resounding and uncontained laugher
Which echoes in memories
They had mysterious smiles and sometimes sad, big eyes
Their friends believed they look liked big birds
They loved their family above all
They were one man´s wives
Traveling in the blue sky
They wanted to go untrodden paths
They loved the arts and are still laughing
