One comes as another goes, and they all ride swiftly

Hildur Elísa Jónsdóttir (Island)

 

Einn kemur þá annar fer, og allir ríða þeir skjótt um (One comes as another goes, and they all ride swiftly) er et performativt video-verk som inviterer publikum til å tråkke ut på gresset og dykke inn i det islandske landskapet ved å se, høre, samt lukte, filmens omgivelser. Verket inspireres av kjærlighet, og på samme måte som en gammel islandsk verselinje, har filmen et repetitivt narrativ, med en grunnidé om at alt repeteres, mens hver repetisjon likevel oppleves som en ny erfaring.

Hildur Elísa Jónsdóttir (25) er fra Reykjavik, og utdannet ved Hamrahlid College i Reykjavík og Iceland University of the Arts.


In the performative video-work “Einn kemur þá annar fer, og allir ríða þeir skjótt um (One comes as another goes, and they all ride swiftly)” the viewer can see, hear and smell the surroundings, and so immerse themselves in the work. The project, inspired by love and an old Islandic verse, has a repetitive narrative, grounded in the idea that everything is constantly repeating itself – but still every repetition becomes an entirely new experience.
