Reykjavík Kamikaze

PØST Los Angeles Kamikaze Series was born out of the concept of impermanence in abandonment and sacrifice, putting all you have in something of the utmost value, but of no value to hold upon other than the gesture, the experience, and the memory of giving. Iceland attracts artists working with the ephemerality of place and being, and appropriately PØST Kamikaze Series connects Reykjavík with Los Angeles through the excitement and beauty of impermanence and its irony.
There is an impermanence associated with Iceland, of a vast nowhere rich in terrain and heimat under an unpredictable forecast of a season of day then night.
There is an impermanence (dis)associated with Los Angeles, of a vast monoculture of fickle relationships under a steady forecast of a permanent summer of 72 and sunny.
In that spirit, PØST Los Angeles introduces Reykjavík Kamikaze: For one evening, seven artists will transform the spaces of the Icelandic Ocean Cluster for PØST Reykjavík.

Reykjavík Kamikaze has been organized by Xárene Eskandar. The participating artists are Johanna Adebäk, Taryn Cassella, Renata De Bonis, Xárene Eskandar, Burke Jam, Darr Tah Lei, Esther Mathis, John Rogers. The exhibit will take place on Friday, December 6, 2013, 15:00-17:00 at the Icelandic Ocean Cluster, Grandagarður 16, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland.
