From the moment I got to Olafsfjordur I was intrigued by the variety of stones in the environment. So I started drawing them, making small portraits of isolated rocks. Could they be something other than stones? An island? An organ? The small portraits developed into a bigger image, a sea of stones. And later, into videos. In a sequence of three scenes, I investigate possible triggers of relations with the rocks, first burying them, then stacking them, and finally resting with them. Maybe it’s time to leave.
