Work in Progress


Gústav Geir Bollason

An abandoned building on Iceland's northern coast has fallen subject to the natural forces of erosion and entropy. As the ruins and the landscape slowly yield to the wind and sea, a loose assemblage of flora, fauna, humans, and revenants share the task of giving the structure new purpose. At the border of fiction and documentary, Mannvirki contemplates this multi-layered world of uncertainty and hope.
