Ready To Live In


By Sægarðar, across from Eimskip parking lot.

The sculpture consists of different facades of houses that are arranged in an arbitrary manner. The houses are modelled by existing houses, reminiscent of older times but at the same time they could be any house, new or old. Buildings, houses and dwellings connect people and share stories over long periods of time, often across generations. In a playful way, the work draws out the scope and dimensions of our environment and bridges the gap between what has happened and what is about to happen, could possibly take place. In this way, the work, and its location, becomes the source of a new narrative.
