As part of the 2008 Reykjavík Arts Festival, Gallerí Ágúst is hosting artist Andrea Maack’s solo exhibit SMART:
In her art, Andrea likes to work with ideas of beauty, fashion, appearance-obsession, body, health and death, whether it be in the form of drawings, sculpture or even scent. Andrea widens the perception of the spectator and creates a new way of sentience. Her art ignites the senses of the audience; a perception of beauty, emotion, impact, story and memory. Andrea’s exhibition consists of new works especially made for this occasion, including a perfume in handcarved bottles, created by Andrea and made in Grasse, France.
Maack is shown above standing between the bottles of her perfume, created for the artist by APF, and a drawing cut into signed and numbered strips to be used to test the perfume.
