4 exhibitions, 4 projects, 4 countries!

Added on by Annie Ling.

It's often said that once you put your work out there, it begin to have a life of their own. Without the support of those who believe in our work, we would truly never be able to give our work the audience it deserves. So a big shout out and thank you to everyone behind these exhibitions!

Three personal projects spanning ten years are concurrently on view in three countries—Iceland, Latvia, Hungary, and a fourth exhibition is on its way here at home in NYC! I'm thrilled to announced an upcoming group show I'm privilege to be part of along with Thomas Holton and An Rong Xu opening next month at The Museum of the City of New York:

Added on by Annie Ling.

My series Open House is currently on view as a solo exhibition in Reykjavik all summer long, coinciding with this year's Nordic Conference Roots & Wings. If you're flocking to Iceland for the summer, hope you can stop by! 

"Moments From The Life Of Asylum Seekers In Iceland" will be at Gerðuberg Culture House until the end of August. The Culture House hours are Monday to Thursday from 10:00-18:00 and Friday from 11:00-18:00.

"Open House" exhibition walkthrough in Djúpavík, Iceland

Added on by Annie Ling.

The old herring factory in Djúpavík (tucked in the remote West Fjords of Iceland) provides an inspiring setting to debut my latest photo series from Iceland: OPEN HOUSE

Each year, the population of roughly 300,000 inhabitants in Iceland triples with tourists arriving from around the globe seeking breathtaking vistas and itineraries packed with otherworldly tours of lava-fields, glaciers, and waterfalls. This year, an unprecedented seven hundred asylum seekers are expected to arrive in the island nation just south of the Arctic Circle, doubling last year’s count. The majority end up in Iceland after their intended destination to the United States, Canada, or the UK is denied. A few sheltered in hostels among tourists and the rest isolated, asylum seekers predominately from the Balkans and the Middle East wait months before few are granted residency. How do asylum seekers experience Iceland in limbo? How do resettled refugees adapt and make a home here? Is this paradise or is this purgatory?
