<p>Frankfurter Kunstverein: Gardar Eide Einarsson uses a great variety of media in his works: painting, <br /> prints, photography as well as installation and video. The works of Gardar <br /> Eide Einarsson are paradoxical and have a quality of low visual density. <br /> That is, in the images and the spatial arrangements, all elements seem like <br /> fragments of a bigger reality removed from the world outside and dragged <br /> into the image and exhibition space. Using what at first sight looks like a <br /> very depurated formalistic language the artist poses to the viewer the <br /> question of what he really is looking at. By absorbing and then isolating <br /> motifs from the so-called underground music and from literature scenes <br /> and then weaving them together with political references, Gardar Eide <br /> Einarsson forces us to reflect upon the difference between contemplating <br /> an image and using it.</p>
