Play Along, Recast brings together four Icelandic artists who are united in their consciousness of the importance of tone. This is not just about subtlety, because ‘tone’ is to do with ‘tension,’ both etymologically and in art. The four artists exploit the difference between what our senses tell us and how we understand the world, but also the correspondence between what has form and what doesn’t have form. The exhibition title tries to capture this complex movement: chronicling reality without visible objection, but at the same time challenging it by translating the untranslatable.
