Inspired by Icelandic artist and activist Roska.
Róska was one of the key artists of the burgeoning neo-avant-garde in Reykjavík in the 1960s, which saw a radical transformation of the cultural field. Through her art works and her participation in revolutionary activities in Iceland and abroad, Róska came to serve as the embodiment of the revolutionary ideals of 1968, which are often shrouded in a spirit of nostalgia. the theme of her life is “continual rebellion in living poetry and politics”, as she herself said in a 1978 article about surrealism. She lived in Rome for the majority of her life, but to Icelanders her life was cloaked in the robes of adventure, even legend, because of her personal charms, artistic talent, political radicalism.
