This year Iceland is the Guest of Honour, the theme is Fabulous Iceland. This Fall we will release a beautiful artist book by artist Elodie Hiryczuk and Sjoerd van Oevelen. Hiryczuk/Van Oevelen - Landfall is a publication based on the temporary art project Landfall in the public space of Amsterdam Zuidas. The artitst conceived the idea of bringing the youngest island in the world – Surtsey off the coast of Iceland – to Zuidas Amsterdam by means of large panoramic photographs. The two land masses are comparable in size, but apart from that, totally different. Surtsey is a spontaneous impulse of nature, accessible only for research. Zuidas is a former marshland changed by human intervention into a business district on the most expensive dirt in the Netherlands.
