oPeninG ocT. 16Th ZisKa
Artist Harpa Einarsdóttir called Ziska graduated as a fashion designer from Iceland school of art and design, spring 2005, but works mostly as a multimedia artist along with other projects. Her work is filled with horses, ladies with streams of tears who seem to be vomiting jewels, and many a woodland animal.There are stars and mythical symbols and waterfalls and goats on leads and all kinds of awesome mythical goodness. Drawing on mythology and fantasy, Ziska draws on symbolism in her works, which include both illustration, mixed multimedia and manipulated photography. Still hailing from her native Iceland and listing running barefoot in moss’ as key to keeping her mind glowing, Ziska’s works seem to find a balance between the ethereal, creepy and downright magic. Ziska´s exhibition Skulls & Halos opened at the Lost Horse gallery at Hverfisgata 71 on the 16th of October at 19:00. What is it all about: Mysticism and magic, earth, creatures, love and balance. There has to be evil so there can be good. Accept your inner demons, flirt with them instead of fighting them.

U.I.C.E. Current Project Aplication Text
Project title Ukraine-Iceland Creative Exchange - U.I.C.E. U.I.C.E. is a Unique organization of Cultural Institutions, Artists, Creative Industries and Exhibition Venues across Europe which are working together to build Creative Exchanges and new media initiatives. The Project is based on facilitating collaborative platforms for the creation of new art. U.I.C.E. is a Collaborative organization which aims at building a connection for the transfer of ideas , art and culture. Iceland and Ukraine are two countries on the boundaries of Europe. Bridging these peripheral lands through Art and the production of Collaborative ventures in art is a way to build on the inherent differences in the cultures to make a new, modern culture. U.I.C.E. is a project coordinated by Alexander Zaklynsky of the Lost Horse Gallery. U.I.C.E. Project is partnered with a project out of Slovakia titled REMAKE: Rethinking Media Artworks in C (K) ollaborative Environments. -Beginning in October of 2010 a Social Media platform will be under development for the Pilot project U.I.C.E. The Media initiative will be online and built by artists through ftp and web development residing in Ukraine and Iceland. Artists will be invited through a call for artists put out by Local Art Galleries and Cultural Institutions. Ultimately the Web Media is a project in selfportraiture and personal customization of Media by the participating artists. The U.I.C.E. project aims to develop from a web based media engagement to a contemporary exhibition plan of New Medias and Collaborative Arts. The Idea of collaboration came simply to being through the similarity in name. In Lviv you have the Museum of Ideas, A progressive and contemporary art gallery and institution. In Iceland you have the House of Ideas, Hugmyndahus, a New Entrepreneur center and Gallery. A collaboration of these two Institutions was an obvious assumption. An Exhibition of Ideas became an initiative that the Lost Horse Gallery has begun to propose to interested partners and co organizers. UICE is a unique organization of Cultural Institutions, Artists, Creative Industries and Exhibition Venues across Europe are working together to build Creative Exchanges and new media initiatives. The Project is based on facilitating collaborative platforms for the creation of new art. The New Art will be organized into a traveling exhibition plan and artists from either country will be chosen to act as cultural ambassadors for U.I.C.E. These chosen artists will make up the Exchange that takes place between Iceland and Ukraine and each artist will have the responsibility of making Collaborative and/or Public Art works in the host countries. The whole project in general will be documented and a focus will be put on documenting the process of making the individual art works and artists themselves. This documentation will be disseminated through the online network in development as well as through the partnering institutions. A catalogue and dvd will be designed as a further method to archive and publish the projects work. The U.I.C.E. Project has at its core a will to bridge these two vibrant and vastly different cultures through Art production and collaborations built on creativity. U.I.C.E. begins in October with the building of a production program and Web Media initiative. The development of a Media presence on the web is important in providing artists initiative to engage in the program. A selection of Ukrainian Artists will be invited to Iceland to participate in the Sequences Art Festival in May and June 2011. The Ukrainian Artists will reside in Reykjavik for one month to make new work for the Sequences Exhibition. The next Phase of the project is set to begin in July of 2011. Icelandic Artists will reside in Lviv for one month to develop and exhibit new work made in collaboration with local artists. This phase of the project will culminate in an exhibition at the Museum of Ideas in Lviv. The Third Phase of the Project is Seminars and Workshops held in both Iceland and Ukraine. These Seminars and Workshops will be based on a Lecture and slide show of the two completed Exhibitions as well as workshops on utilizing the We-C.info Website and network. The next phase is Building on the exhibitions and online Network/media for involvement in the traveling Exhibition program in The Remake Project Mechanism. U.I.C.E. has a broad range of effect/exposure throughout eastern and western Europe. As the Project is a bridge between two peripheral lands on the territory of Europe, a broad swath is cut and inside this swath are the various links with partner organizations and Contemporary art institutions across Europe. The potential for this project to reach a broad and engaged public is very good as it is associated with the Remake Project Mechanism which has support from the EEA and thus exhibiting throughout Europe in 2011/12 from Romania to Slovakia, France, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Poland, Germany and Iceland. This Exhibition Program is being developed and already has confirmed Exhibitions at various Contemporary art Institutions across Europe. Through this Association as well as the two collaborating institutions in either country, a broad range of public will be exposed to the project via its production and exhibitions. The main collaborating institutions, Hugmyndahus and The Museum of Ideas, will each be in charge of gathering interested artists and disseminating the project mechanism. The Project mechanism will be focused on Performing Art, public art, time based art, and media art as well as the archiving and cataloging of the collected documentation. This Documentation will be disseminated through the website, exhibition plan and culminating published catalog of U.I.C.E.. U.I.C.E. has a primary objective of closing the gap between emerging artists and art scenes across Europe. The objective of social networking and organizing of artists to work in an allinclusive atmosphere first on the web and then in real life is integral to the Exhibition plan being fostered. Innovation is made through conversation and collaboration. U.I.C.E. will be designed to bridge, in its first incarnation, the vibrant art scenes of Lviv and Reykjavik. This opening of a portal dedicated to production of exhibitions and exchange of information will be propelled and built by the artists invited and/or dedicated to its evolution. A network of organizations throughout Europe have dedicated time to exhibiting U.I.C.E. starting in 2011 in Lublin, Poland and ending up in Reykjavik, Iceland at years end in 2012. U.I.C.E. is an Exhibition development project and is based on the participation and organization of various artists and organizations from across Europe. The development aspect is based on real/ true collaborations built between the co-organizers to develop further collaborations of their associated artists. The presentation of this project and exhibition will evolve with the growing and engaged network of artists it aims to build.

RETINA PROJECTS . ORG
A Lost horse gallery Initiative

-The Exhibition Model for U.I.C.E. will be resulting from the online networking and production that will begin in late October 2010 titled WE-C.Info. This will be a network of artists between Iceland and Ukraine that will build a platform for exhibiting and networking. This Part of the project is research and development and will begin as an archive but develop into a more customizable web space for the Exhibiting Artist/Viewer. The Audience initiates the production of this phase of the project. Artists from both lands will have the ability to upload work and stream content to the Web space. The Web space is set up to be a depository for web media and a free space to find information. Much Like Napster or any file sharing this network would be streamlined to provide Art related digital media based information. U.I.C.E. as a self sufficient and self driven media mechanism on the web has a potential to build into a larger network of Artists across the globe. As the Project is community driven for the bridging of different communities, artists and organizers have a general will for collaboration. The Collaboration is based on common interests and both Artists and Organizers are building on the dialogue promoted by the Project mechanism. In December 2010 the Website http://UICE.INFO will be uploaded and be the first space where Info and links to artists and organizations in either country will be collected and made available. This site will be a virtual gallery of a select group of artists which will be developing over the next months and finalized in May 2011.

REMAKE / RETHINKING MEDIA ART IN K(C)OLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENTS
The REMAKE project is funded by Culture Programme of the EU. It is aimed at collaborative production and international presentation of new artworks, inspired by the rich history of European media art. The project is building on a research conducted in the recent years by a group of art theorists, called MONOSKOP, a collaborative research on media art and culture in Europe. The research examines the social context of historical developments in media art in Europe (with special focus on Central and Eastern Europe). Analysis of sociopoetic conditions of art and technology crossings from 1960s to 2000s draws upon the undertakings in experimental and avantgarde film, performance art, computer art, video art, experimental music, sound art, and media theory. The objective is to create professional and solid basis for theoreticians and critics to assist them in development of the theoretical discourse on European new media art.
the AIm of the REMAKE project is to enhance this on-going research in an appealing, playful

and artistically-challenging way: by producing and presenting a set of up-to-date artworks which will be inspired by particular well-known (but also forgotten) pieces of media art history in different European countries. The public outputs will be supervised and the artistic selection conducted by outstanding as well as young media art curators from several countries (SK, CZ, BE, DE) invited by the project coorganizers. An important part of the project is circulation of ideas and connection to universities, research and education. Therefore, project will involve not only well-known artists, but also gifted young generation including art students and their teachers. centers for contemporary art of Europe. The project consists of workshops, artistic residencies, public shows (exhibitions in Brno, Cluj, Nantes, Reykjavik, multimedia performances in Bratislava, Banska Bystrica and other venues), lectures and discussions, supporting circulation of lecturers/artists, as well as „collaborative lectures“ combining theory and practice.
