For her 2016 photographic series, “The Iceland Project,” contemporary artist Kayo Albert traveled to Iceland to capture the black sand, green moss, blue water, natural erosion, and spectacular structures that give Iceland a sense of otherworldliness. Interested in the complexities that arise from layering, Albert draws lines onto her photography. The preciseness of the geometric shapes these lines form emphasizes the desolateness of the Icelandic landscape. Ultimately Albert’s minimal, imaginary shapes act as human intervention in the devastatingly complex and chaotic Iceland landscapes. She encourages all artists, photographers, and travelers to make the trip to Iceland. Albert’s work will be on display August 6th to 12th at 198 Allen Street as part of Con Artist Collective’s All Stars Show.
