Summary

An exhibition of life size sculptures by Icelandic artist Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir will be placed around the campus stimulating thought and refection about the historic connection between Iceland and Hull.

Cairns are a common sight in the Icelandic landscape and were used as landmarks for people to find their way from one place to another. They were also often placed on coastlines to guide ships to harbour. The figures on campus portray frozen moments of contemplation and take on the form of human trail markers referencing themes of spirituality and physicality.

Steinunn has been working on figurative sculpture from the beginning of her career almost 40 years ago. Her figures are androgynous symbols of humanity. Steinunn is well known in Hull for her iconic sculpture Voyage overlooking the Humber estuary at Victoria Pier.

The University of Hull and the artist are pleased to celebrate the common cultural history and partnership of Hull and Iceland with this exhibition.

Please note this is an outdoor exhibition open all day.

Maps are also available from the Venn Reception, the Middleton Hall or the Brynmor Jones Library.

In case you are unfamiliar with the campus and wish to be guided, volunteers are on hand to take you around the trail. Please just ask any volunteer you see and they will direct you to the right place.

The trail is wheelchair friendly and easily accessible.
