A Case for Halldór Laxness

A case for Halldór Laxness is a multi media installation that fits into a briefcase. It contains moments from Laxness’s novels translated into objects and activities. As well as by reading Laxness it has been informed by a field trip to and residency and exhibition in Iceland in 2013. Part of a larger work in progress, it will be edited after the conference to incorporate new findings that emerge from further research into the sites and events connected to the literary works and from audience responses.
