At the opening there was a dock worker performance developed in collaboration with Hinrik Þór Svavarsson, a performer and a former dock worker. Dock-workers read original poetry for the audience written about their own reality of work and thus they became the artists for the night.
The artist is an observer of socio-political issues and approaches the subject in a surreal and abstract manner. The often forgotten or hidden work of dock workers is examined and she puts it in context with the artist as worker. The work is multilayered and thought provoking.
