Transcendence by Hildur Yeoman at Reykjavik Art Festival

Hildur Yeoman shows a new work Transcendence as part of the Reykjavik Art Festival. The performance takes place on Friday, June 3 at 20 in Lækningaminjasafn Íslands, Seltjarnarnes.
The performance combines design, photography, music and visual arts in a new way.

“There is a place on the boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness –between waking and sleeping. This place is home to hallucinations and nightmares, but also the dwelling place of sweet dreams and tranquility. It is a fascinating place with a tendency to lure us in and become a desirable place to stay.

Transcendence works with the boundaries between dreaming and sleeping, embarking on a journey into an otherworld which is both familiar and alien to man.”

Fashion designer Hildur Yeoman has never been afraid to explore new methods in her design work. She seeks inspira-tion from powerful experiences where perception, symbols, characteristics, music, visual arts and atmosphere play important roles and are interwoven to create new worlds.
