Shadows / Echoes II
The project Shadows / Echoes II was conducted over a two-year period where the artist travelled around Iceland to research and document a system of believes where the existence of elves and fairies is not seen as marginal. Through a rather "naive" attempt to document the existence of elves the artist has collected and transcribed conversations with clairvoyants, photographs from the archive at the Reykjavik Photography Museum, testimonies from the National Museum of Iceland, as well as her own attempts to photograph places with assumed elf populations. The archive may seem arbitrary and incoherent; with no "valid" proof of this hidden world the material operates as a link between the existing reality and the possibility of another.
