Opus Magni

Steinthór Birgisson

We follow the performance of sequential sculptures by Magnús Pálsson in 2013-2015, woven together with preparatory efforts and toil, errands and discoveries. The artist delves into his own past in the company of his older work, while his road trip with friends through autumn-hued nature moves progressively towards his cottage, Askance, in Dalar county, where the film concludes with a pleasant sigh.
