While at Iceland with my Nordic artists’ book project I reside in Alvar Aalto‘s Nordic House with Marianne Laimer from Sweden. We’re in the process of unpacking the boxes from Nuuk – and setting up the exhibition here – along with our Icelandic colleagues from ARKIR. Everything works out just fine, not least thanks to ARKIR artists and their highly professional and effective approach and high spirits.
Fortunately, we also find time to go out and look around. Have been around in Reykjavik, visited Svanborg Matthíasdóttir and her studio. And today we have been soaking for several hours outdoors in the turquoise and siliceous 35-40 degree water of The Blue Lagoon – truly an experience to be recommended! I feel perfectly warm and relaxed throughout my body – and enjoy my finest angel-soft skin ever.
