Kunstmuseum Ahlen
April 4th 2014 at 9pm

On April 4th a new permanent outdoor work by Egill Sæbjörnsson will be inaugurated in Germany. The piece is called Kaskade and is a site specific video projection on the front facade of Kunstmuseum Ahlen in the city of Ahlen, Germany. The piece is the result of a closed “art in puplic space” competition where Egill Sæbjörnsson was invited to participate in last year and won 1.prize. From the 4th of April, Kaskade can be seen after dark on the outside of the museum and will be on for 4 hours every night. The inauguration takes place Friday April 4th at 9pm and the infamous musician Chilly Gonzales will play live music for guests outside the museum.


Egill Sæbjörnsson participated in a short group show called GOYS and BIRLS in Kunstakademie Münster. The exhibition evolved around playfulness, ball games, pictures and movement. Sæbjörnsson showed a work from 2004; MR. PIANO AND MRS. PILE

The Bakery

Event on Torstrasse 111, Berlin
Sept 21st 2013 at 15:00-22:00

The Bakery is a performance, installation and research project initiated by Egill Sæbjörnsson in collaboration with curator Annabelle von Girsewald.

The aim of the project is to learn more about the effect of food in terms of physical, cultural and spiritual diet. The event brings the magical courtyard on Torstrasse to life and invites Berlin artists and creative people, in the broadest sense to make “bread” together. The bread will be made of clay, drawn on paper or whatever ideas people may come up with. The project led by the artists is to be understood as a process-orientated and it is particularly important that there are no guidelines or restrictions. The final result will be presented in the spring of 2014 in the form of a café exhibition where there will be bread or cake to consume, to digest and to purchase.

Participating artists; Rosa Barba (IT) Florian Neufeldt (DE) Libia Castro & Olafur Olafsson (ES, IS)
