Hannesarholt and The Reykjavik School of Visual Arts showcase the result of a new collaboration. The exhibition focuses on works from students as well as various food innovations from the kitchen of Hannesarholt. The works are all inspired by the historic culture house.
The non-profit organisation Hannesarholt and The Reykjavík School of Visual Arts have formed a collaboration which the textile and ceramic departments of the school have been working on during the spring semester of 2021. The exhibition is based on works from these two departments that have designed, and developed products and artworks inspired by the culture house Hannsarholt.
The students from the ceramic department have designed and produced a set of plates, especially designed for the restaurant in Hannesarholt and its menu. The textile department will exhibit a collection of patterns that are all inspired by Hannesarholt and showcase a broad approach to patternmaking and how they can be used. The student work will then be utilised within daily operations in Hannesarholt and during Design March as a performative part of the exhibition.
The works will be displayed from concept development, to design process and to a final product which gives the viewer a clear insight into the whole project.
Over the whole festival there will be a live stream directly from the kitchen of Hannesarholt, where the chefs will be creating foods from Icelandic ingredients that usually are categorised as trash. Hannesarholt is constantly looking at ways to limit the amount of trash we create and to limit the carbon footprint of each plate of food.
