Iceland is a geologically active wonder, with diverse and magnificent landscapes constantly transformed by fire and ice. Join award-winning photographer Feodor Pitcairn, poet Ari Trausti Guðmundsson, and the National Museum of Natural History on an exploration of the forces that shaped Iceland's past and will influence its future.
Nurturing landscapes reside
all around us
as well as within us.
The more pristine they are,
the deeper they touch our mind,
They stir up waves of feelings,
though never the same for each of us.
This is primordial Iceland.Ari Trausti Guðmundsson
As the Arctic Tern flies
from Iceland's volcanic sands
to gleaming Antarctic ice cliffs,
there is sea.
And, aye, if you touch an iceberg in the surf
you link with its alias
at the far southern end of the ocean.
The waterway is unbroken.Ari Trausti Guðmundsson
The Earth is a whole.
from inside Earth,
hairline cracks wheezing.
A hidden volcano,
ready to burst,
whispers an untold story.
Come closer and listen!Ari Trausti Guðmundsson
This exhibition is made possible by the Embassy of Iceland, Washington, DC in collaboration with Feo Pitcairn Fine Art
