Horfur


Steinunn Þórarinsdóttir, Horfur, 2000 (Prospect, 2000)
There are several statues in this style to be found in Reykjavík, all of them by the same artist. While they are undeniably well sculpted, I find them depressing because they all seem to have the blues quite badly. The feeling here is heightened by the rain and the wet bundle of newspapers on the pavement. All that's missing is a depressing headline.
