The Palace of the Summerland
„To be a poet is to be a visitor on a distant shore until one dies.“ Halldór Laxness
Recently dubbed by Vogue as “Ragnar of Reykjavik”, and labeled as “ fun-loving, cigar-smoking, Cadillac-driving, highly entertaining”, Ragnar Kjartansson crosses boundaries between different media with as much ease and grace as he switches between the roles and personas he creates and personifies. In collaboration with a group of approx. 20 talented artists, musicians, and friends, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) is embarking once again on a bold new commission, one that defies traditional categorization in collaboration. Broadening the scope of its interdisciplinary and multimedia investigations, TBA21 will present a two-part project titled The Palace of the Summerland in its spectacular venue at the Augarten in Vienna.
