Listaskotið is a new initiative at the National Gallery of the Faroe Islands, in which temporary exhibitions will present a rich diversity of contemporary art. More innovative, experimental art will be given more space both in the museum and in the community, exploring and challenging current artistic issues and probing the universe of art.
The first artist to exhibit in Listaskotið will be the multi-artist, Heiðrikur á Heygum. A graduate of Listaháskóli Islands (The Icelandic Academy of Fine Arts), he is an active musician, has directed films and music videos and delved into many other artistic genres.
To help him with the exhibition Heiðrikur á Heygum has enlisted the assistance of the stage designer Sámal Blak. The exhibition will run from 28 May to 18 July 2021 at the National Gallery of the Faroe Islands.
