The Festival Exhibition "Water and Oil" opened today, bringing some well-deserved attention to the avantgarde artist Ragnhild Kaarbø and her artistic legacy. The exhibition will be available the next 2 weeks, where it will be possible to experience Kaarbø's art in context with installations and video art from The Icelandic Love Corporation.  

The opening of the Festival Exhibition was performed by Marta Hofsøy from Troms og Finnmark county, artistic director Ragnheiður Skúladóttir and curator Ingeborg Annie Lindahl. The Icelandic Love Corporation did a performance in front of their installation "Water and Oil", made of colorful pantyhoses and rocks.
