Skye Gilkerson
Wounded in West Texas
unfolded page of the New York Times with punctuation removed, ink

Each drawing is made of an unfolded page from the New York Times, with every punctuation mark removed. The remaining paper is saturated with its own medium: black ink, leaving a cosmos of blank spaces. Each piece represents one month of the past year; the titles are drawn from the unseen text of each page, zooming into specific content from that day, ranging from individual tragedies and victories to world wide events.

Library of Water | Roni Horn

Unfortunately the library was closed during our time in Stykkisholmur but I did manage to get a few shots from the exterior.

For the past 30 years, the work of Roni Horn has been intimately involved with the singular geography, geology, climate and culture of Iceland. Library of Water is a long term installation including three related collections of water, words, and weather reports. The installation is housed in a former library building in the coastal town of Stykkisholmur, Iceland.

Water, Selected is a constellation of 24 glass columns containing water collected from ice from some of the major glaciers around Iceland. The glass columns refract and reflect the light onto a rubber floor embedded with a field of words in Icelandic and English which relate to the weather – inside or outside. The sculpture installation offers a space for private reflection whilst accommodating a wide variety of community uses.

 

Dan Flavin Art Institute

DIA Art Foundation
Dan Flavin Art Institute
Corwith Avenue, off Main Street
Bridgehampton, New York

Established in 1983 as a permanent installation of Flavin’s work, this renovated firehouse holds a permanent installation of nine works in fluorescent light created by the artist between 1963 and 1981, and a gallery for changing exhibitions. It is well worth a visit and makes a perfect end of summer day trip from new york city.
