As Far as the Eye Can See is a varied and extensive overview exhibition of the works of visual artist Birgir Andrésson (1955-2007) that takes over Kjarvalsstaðir.
Birgir Andrésson was a leading force in Icelandic art for more than thirty years, and died long before his time. Birgir searched the well of Icelandic culture, stories, traditions and the nation's handwork for inspiration. He drew elements from these sources and presented them in a uniquely informed way in works that secured his place in Icelandic art history and drew admiration from the international art scene. This exhibition gives insight into the artist's influential career and connects his works not only to the local art scene, but to contemporary art internationally.
Many Languages of Art is a part of the collaborative project Let's join hands (Tökum höndum saman) on behalf of the Reykjavik City Museum and Reykjavik Art Museum, which received a grant from The Museum Council of Iceland.
