Hrefna Hörn Leifsdóttir / "A carefully chosen set of advises"

4 - 18 July, 2019

Auguststrasse 10
Berlin, Germany

“not that I expected to be in the center, just to take a part 
Just not made invisible by a single hand gesture
Looked right through
Then ve glasses later

he unexpectedly bent over
and whispered
some carefully chosen set of advises
I recently learned that the word glamour
comes from the sound of armour in movement,
when soldiers switched from leather to steel,
you could hear moving across the eld
the sound of protection.
when a bit too structural row of stones appear
or a piece of metal sticks out of the foundation of a new building the manager is forced to make a call
and paperwork later- we appear
one of us picks up the metal- detector
To scan the surrounding landscape
a suspiciously shaped hill
from one beep to another the dots start connecting
but what else lays under the grass
where it was least likely that people would pass
echoing in the soil
Severed bonds between brothers and fathers
twisted shapeshifting tale
says it can predict what will come
spilled the truth
spilled the lie
spilled the prediction
It’s not like I can say I know it will happen
but more than based on a feeling alone
you navigate such a clear curve
I can predict the next steps
for a trade I bend back and whisper
some carefully chosen set of advices”
