Tumi Magnússon’s video work Loop brings together all the different working methods that the artist has adopted over time, in his paintings and photographs from the 1990s as well as video works from the last 20 years. He joins different things together, pulls them apart, turns situations upside down, changes speed and equates something tiny with something huge. He considers how long it takes to go from one place to another and the speed required to reach the destination.

Man-made, everyday life has been a primary focus of Tumi's work thus far, but in Loop he deals with the natural world in an unexpected way, evoking some surprising sides of familiar phenomena that spark off new trains of thought in the viewer's mind. The piece is a 14-channel video installation that fills the gallery with image and sound.
