Anna Rún Tryggvadottir’s installation is a continuation of Turning Points (2018) first shown at Cryptopian states, Cycle music and arts festival in Berlin in May this year. On this occasion, the work stands at Þingvellir national park, which was founded in 1930, marking the 1000th anniversary of the first Alþing (the Icelandic Althing was founded at this site in 930, making it the oldest ”parliament” in the world).
The work literarily involves a revolution, recording and displacing nature, as a circular clip section of the environment rotates at very slow speed with no other traces visible in the landscape surrounding it. The only difference is a circle that rotates once every 4 minutes. Hardly visible at first sight, one has to watch carefully to see the earth turn.
