Ragnar Kjartansson: The Sky in a Room

National Museum Cardiff

3 February – 11 March 2018

The Icelandic artist presents a new site-specific performance with support from Art Fund.

Ragnar Kjartansson: The Sky in a Room, 2018
Co-commissioned by Artes Mundi and Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, the performance sees a series of organists perform an Italian love song 'Il Cielo In Una Stanza' (The Sky in a Room) over a five week period in a bare gallery. This atmosphere reflects the song's lyrics, which ponder how love's power can make walls and ceilings disappear.
