Gallery Talk: Cyborg
Gallery Talk through the exhibition Erró: Cyborg at Hafnarhús. In Icelandic.
The acclaimed artist Erró (b. 1932) is considered one of the leading figures in European Pop-Art. During his long and successful career he has delved into diverse subjects in his paintings, often using an overflow of images to reflect on contemporary society of consumption, in addition to references to various political current issues.
From early on Erró was inspired by technology and science, creating works where the human and the mechanic are combined. In particular he examined how technology invades the body and how the human body adapts to the machine.
Last day of the exhibition is on Sunday 7th of February.
