2013, Kjarvalsstaðir, Reykjavik, Iceland.
Reykjavík Art Museum unveiled the outdoor artwork Turnabout by Guðjón Ketilsson at a ceremony at Kjarvalsstaði, the first day of summer, April 25, 2013. With the work Turnabout, the artist Guðjón Ketilsson has created a form that refers to a house and turns the roof up on one side but down on the other. The artwork evokes the phenomenon of Camera Obscura, the proto-camera, which projects an inverted model inside a darkened box. Guðjón's work invites you to crawl through it and dwell in it. Small holes in the upper part of the work open the view up to the starry sky during the day, but in the dark you can see small light beams out through the holes from a light at the bottom of the work.
