Glassrain

Rúrí

4.3.2023 — 17.9.2023

National Gallery of Iceland

Glassrain is an installation from 1984, one of the first of Rúrí‘s many works that address the theme of time and menace. Glassrain comprises 500 razor-sharp fragments of glass, each ending in a point; the glass sheets, of variable length, hang in clusters from ceiling to floor. Each piece is suspended on a clear thread, and when a visitor walks past the piece, air currents lead the glass pieces to turn on their threads.
