Temporary outdoor installation in Bernhöftstorfa square, a deserted corner of Reykjavík downtown.

A collaboration with Laufey Jónsdóttir (fashion designer and illustrator) and Sigurður Arent Jónsson (artist).

This project was a part of the “Torg í Biðstöðu” (“Meanwhile projects”) that is a program run by the City of Reykjavik. Through the program, the city assigned areas that have been sidelined in the planning process to artists and designers to create temporary works, test and play with the current and future of the cityscape.

PART I

Colorful wooden stools and mesmerizing pond with a floating sculpture designed to attract attention of the many passersby.

PART II

Series of vandalism set its mark on the first few weeks of the project, followed by endless repairs.

PART III

Vandalism, author unknown, 2013.

We decided to that the only victory would be the conceptual victory of destroying the decorations ourselves.
