40 Exhibitions in 40 days - by Aðalheiður Eysteinsdóttir

Icelandic artist Aðalheiður Eysteinsdóttir is celebrating her 40th birthday with an exhibition of her work entitled 40 Exhibitions in 40 days at Sculpture Square - one of the 40 venues for her worldwide solo exhibition - from 1 July to 30 August 2003.

The exhibition features exquisite wood figures of different heights with cut-out faces from magazines or photographs. These whimsical sculptures have their bodies and clothing painted on by the artist.

The first exhibition opened in Iceland on Eysteinsdóttir’s actual birthday, 23 June 2003. On each of the 40 days thereafter, the exhibition opens somewhere in the world, in galleries or even peoples’ homes, and runs for as long as the local host sees fit.

Other countries hosting the exhibition include Finland, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Namibia, Norway, Switzerland and the US. The artist plans to compile photographs of the 40 exhibition openings and publish a book at the end of the project.

This is also a rare opportunity to explore Sculpture Square’s historically rich conservation buildings which were first built in 1870 as a Baba Methodist church. Unlike its other exhibitions, 40 Exhibitions in 40 Days will only be open to the public during regular office hours. You will need to press the doorbell to be allowed access to Sculpture Square’s private corridor gallery on the 2nd floor of the Lower Gallery building, normally closed to the public. Opening hours: 10am - 5pm weekdays; 10am - 12pm Saturdays; closed on Sundays. Sculpture Square is at 155 Middle Road (near Bugis MRT station).

“It’s great for Sculpture Square – and Singapore - to participate in such international projects. Eysteinsdóttir’s little wood blocks are very unusual and quirky. Plus it’s not very often that Singaporeans get to see Icelandic art. To most of us, Iceland is such a faraway place!” said Ms Tay Swee Lin, general manager of Sculpture Square.

Sculpture Square is also celebrating its own 4th birthday during this period with Subverted Boundaries, an ongoing exhibition of cutting-edge works by contemporary artists from Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam in its Chapel Gallery and Lower Gallery.
