Persons Projects proudly presents Finnbogi Pétursson’s solo exhibition Silent Silence. The works selected for this exhibition reflect the various ways in which Pétursson experiments with movement and sound to explore silence as a concept for thought and being. His minimalistic installations make the primary natural forces visible, audible, and tangible. Though, surrounding us all the time, being fundamental for our life on earth, they are yet hidden from our perception: sound waves, the pulsation of light, and the rotating movement of electrons. In this exhibition, silence has a similar appearance as white light in Isaac Newton’s experiments: Pétursson's works act like a prism that lets us experience silence in all its facets of the visible (and audible) spectrum.
