With Hanni Bjartalid still working in the Curated Place studio developing new work for our upcoming project in his native lands, I'm sat in Copenhagen Airport waiting for a flight to the Faroes to scope out possible locations for the light installations we'll be producing along with the Nordic House there for the light festival in November.
I've already marked myself out as a Faroes virgin visitor by having the BIGGEST coat on the plane and by defaulting to my toddler-standard Icelandic whenever anyone talks to me in Faroese.
Looking forward to seeing Sif Gunnarsdóttir, director of the Norðurlandahúsið who is developing the festival with us, Kinna Poulsen editor in chief of Faroes art blog Listin (who has recommended I drink as much as possible on the flight to get my money's worth), and Jan Andersson of Steinprent - master printmaker and the man who has a reputation for getting things done in Torshavn.
As always I'm working closely with NICE director Ingi Thor who makes all these Nordic projects happen and who is probably going to be exhausted from a week in Scotland with Reykjavik City Council. If you want something doing ask a busy person.
