The opening weekend continued with openings in the Living Art Museum (Nýló) and Loftsson. Nýló was founded by artists in 1978 and has been artist run ever since and plays a significant role in the art scene in Iceland. Loftsson by contrast is a former supermarket that now plays as an empty (gorgeous) canvas for the works of 8 artists in addition to one in the attic, a former library.
Three artists performed this day – Kris Lemsalu who welcomed guests at the entrance of Loftsson, Raul Keller who narrowcasted during the opening and Kolbeinn Hugi who invited 3 storytellers, 3 image creators who used Sketchup, and three who created live music, each corresponding to each others input. In all 9 people who contribute to a narrative and sensual performance that collaboratively built up during the night.
