Hale-Bopp 1997

Undir pari, Reykjavik
In the first garment-work “Hale-Bopp”, which took place in the gallery Undir Pari in April 1997 the guests were invited to try on clothes (with the routes of the comets Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake and drawings of spirals printed on them) in the gallery. Actually, this was a happening where the artist marked the way but the guests did the rest. The happening was documented on video like the other two later.

The text is an translation of a review on Radhildur Ingadottir’s artworks in the cultural magazine Skirnir, spring 1999
It was written by the art historian Audur Olafsdottir.
