Hrafn Jónsson (KRUMMI), SKRÖLT III (2020)

3. June @ 10:00 - 13. June @ 20:00

Krummi was a teenager when he became disabled. Through his relationship with the photographic medium he has come to see that whether he is able, less able, more able or disable, he is always, in some way, able.⁠ 

Skrölt III is the most recent part of a larger, ongoing series spanning over three years, in which Krummi photographed his neighbourhood and closest surroundings in Reykjavik—typically returning again and again to the same places, sometimes daily. 

His most recent works were created during the pandemic in 2020. He explains, “My perception of my everyday became foreign, reality became unreal, days lost their colour and seemed motionless. This strange mood, coupled with curiosity and my camera compelled me to rattle on and turn complex, even unknown thoughts and feelings into photographs.“

Skrölt III is being presented with twelve works displayed from various vantage points from ground level, raised, to hung echoing his visual perspectives of his surroundings created by his unique physical limitations.

The Camera House presenting SKRÖLT III by Hrafn Jónsson (KRUMMI) has been designed and built by Alice Lindstrøm, Ida Forssén, Rókur Dam Norðoy, Kristin Cuhra and Victoria Amalie Dam Nielsen, Bachelor students from the Institute of Architecture and Design, Royal Danish Academy, under the supervision of Architect and Teacher Kristian Hansen, from Marstal Søfartsmuseum. Head of the Bachelor program is Architect, Associate Professor Jacob Sebastian Bang.

BIOGRAPHY
Krummi (b.1990) is a Reykjavik-based photographer and graduated from his
education in photography at Ljósmyndaskólinn in 2021.⁠By adhering to the seemingly simple and straightforward medium most of us engage with every day, Krummi is able to push himself forward and engage with his environment. He rattles on, maneuvering through the obstacle course of his everyday life with his unconventional walking patterna clumsy flâneur. ⁠

His project and participation is supported by Dansk-Islandsk Fond and The Reykjavik Human Rights fund.

We wish to thank our key partner Institute for Architecture and Design, The Royal Danish Academy for co-creation of the architectural framework of the exhibition. 

The festival centre and CPF has generously been supported by Københavns Kommune, Det Obelske Familiefond and Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.
