A new exhibition has been opened in gallery Klaustur with photos made by the French photographers Anne Favret and Patrick Manez. The pictures are a part of large photo project that they worked on for years by the astronomical obervatory on the Calern plateau in South France. They work together on their photographical projects and have focused on the preoccupation of landscape. Their projects have been in historical and superficial cities, as Alexandria, Rotterdam, Montreuil, Genua, Berlin and Bruxels.
Anne Favret and Patrick Manez are a bit like the hero of Solaris (from the 1961 novel by Stanislas Lem). They went to take a closer look to a strange city, the astrometrical observatory of the Calern plateau located between heaven and earth, not so different from a space station. (Michel Poivert)
The exhibition will stand until 27th June and it is open everyday at Skriðuklaustur from 10:00 til 18:00.
