Chromo Sapiens – Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter. In Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir’s multisensory large-scale installation she uses her personally developed textile techniques, a manipulation of her signature medium, synthetic hair. The installation is a labyrinthine journey through cavernous chambers, a fuzzy abstraction of nature whose surface entirely covers the inside of the space in a colourful tangle of synthetic hair. The texture resembles plant-like overgrowth, the inverted hide of a beast, an organism embracing the viewer. Entering the piece as a Homo Sapiens, you are invited to explore your interior landscape through the stimulation of the senses where You are the destination of the journey, transformed into Chromo Sapiens.
