THE WASHERWOMEN’;S WALK
A STROLL INTO HISTORY

Laugavegur

On Saturday 23 May 2009 at 13:00, the START ART gallery invites to a performance installation commemorating all the women of Reykjavík who washed their laundry in the hot springs in Laugardalur in times past. Anyone who wishes to honour their memory is invited to take part. Reykjavík people may think of the hot springs as being a long way from the city centre, but actually it is a mere half-hour’;s leisurely walk, a stroll that anyone aged 8 to 80 can manage.

Sensi/able SpacesSpace
An International Art and Environment Conference
University of Iceland
Reykjavik, Iceland.

The conference are hosted by the departments of Philosophy and Geology & Geography with the 20th Reykjavík Arts Festival.
The event deals with the perception and conception of spaces in the built as well as the natural environment. The aim of the event is to bring together a wide range of academics from the physical sciences, social sciences and humanities, as well as artists and activists who have an interest in the way spaces can be sensed, understood and reconfigured.
Spaces today are continually being reconstituted and reformulated in various ways, often relying on notions of what is sensible, narrowly defined by groups with an ideological agenda of some kind and/or vested economic interests. These sensible factors often obscure and ignore notions of the sensable – that which people perceive through the senses while being in spaces. The conference (01.05-02.06) and art exhibit (01.06-15.06) are about drawing out these sensibilities based on the sensable, as opposed to subjectively formulated agendas or interests which are based on many different notions of the sensible.
