Sunna Margrét Þórisdóttir – Five Songs for Swimming
by Sunna Margrét Þórisdóttir
Five Songs for Swimming is an installation project that is divided into three parts: vinyl, book and performance. The vinyl consists of five original songs inspired by the late Unnur Ágústsdóttir, a swimming queen from the 40s who grew up on an isolated island in the Atlantic. The book titled An Insufficient Guide to Writing a Lullaby is written around the songs recorded on the vinyl in relation to the subject of the lullaby and daydreaming. A bright velvet fabric marks the space where the songs are performed.
