Human nature

“Human nature” is a multi-sensory exhibition that tells six stories of daily lives in nature in the Westfjords region, Iceland: the seasons of sheep farming, a grandmother picking mushrooms and tending to a geothermal garden to make meals for her family, baking traditional cakes from the ruby red rhubarbs growing wild in the most remote fjord, harvesting seaweed by hand to make fertilisers, creating conversations with water and colour  movements and an artist’s travels in the least visited landscapes by bicycling. A series of free events and classes connected to these themes were hosted to give visitors a chance to meet and take a walk in these Westfjordians’ shoes. The exhibition and events have ended, but stories live on on our website:
