Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors
UNITED STATES
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS  •  The Institute of Contemporary Art 1  •  Until 2 November 2014
 
Curated by Andrea Lissoni and Heike Munder, The Visitors The Visitors consists of nine videos on a scale of 1:1, in which the audience sees different musicians, all friends of Kjartansson's (including Kristín Anna and Gyða Valtýsdóttir, founding sisters of the historic Icelandic band Múm, and Kjartan Sveinsson, keyboard player until 2012 with the famous Sigur Rós). For over an hour, the musicians, each with a different instrument, sing and play the same melody of a song called Feminine Ways. The nine scenes are set in the many rooms of the large, dilapidated nineteenth-century Rokeby Farm in Upstate New York. Ragnar Kjartansson was born in 1976 in Reykjavík (Iceland), where he lives and works. In 2013 he was invited to take part in the 55th Venice Biennale, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, during which he puts on S.S. Hangover, combining performance, sculpture and sound.
