Finnbogi Pétursson: Infra-supra 2019
Western Gallery & Sculpture Collection, WWU, Bellingham, WA - Western Washington University, Bellingham. To Mar 16
Icelandic artist Finnbogi Pétursson lives in Vancouver, BC. His Northwest US debut at the Western Gallery involves another of his sound and water installations, which one writer has described as “part physics and part poetics.” Representing Iceland at the 2001 Venice Biennale, Pétursson five years later won the Carnegie Art Award in Pittsburgh. Infra-Supra 2019 fills the gallery with pulsing geometric light patterns projected onto walls, making what the artist calls “drawings.” Low-frequency sounds complement the immersive kinetic light environment.
