‘ULTIMA THULE – Island als Narration’. Current group exhibition at Schloss Wolkersdorf, Galerie 2, in Austria with new installation version of the piece ‘Fjarðarheiði’ with Anna Friz. Curated by Karin Mack for Fluss – NÖ Initiative für Foto- und Medienkunst.
The term ULTIMA THULE in ancient geographies denotes any distant place located beyond the borders of the known world. The Greek explorer Pytheas is the first to have written of Thule after his travels between 330–320 BC. In the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance, Thule was often identified as Iceland. The exhibition presents works by artists from Iceland and Austria as different kinds of narration about this special island.
