The End — Rocky Mountains // Ragnar Kjartansson // 5 channel video installation, 30’ // 2009
Before entering the room, the sound of what seems a familiar folk song echoes in the hallway. Inside the room are five large projections of beautiful Rocky Mountains landscapes. The Icelandic artist, Ragnar Kjartansson, and his friend are shown playing guitars or pianos in various locations in the snowy mountains. Sometimes, only one person is playing music while the other walks back in forth trying to keep warm. The harmony mixed with the image of the pristine white mountains provide for an intimate viewing experience.
