The Heath

Jessica Auer

Jessica Auer Heiðin

The exhibition comprises recent photographs and videos by the renowned Seyðisfjörður- based, Canadian photographer Jessica Auer.  Heiðin – an ongoing work, explores the history and development of Road 93, the highest altitude road in Iceland and the only overland route in and out of Seyðisfjörður. In wintertime the road is closed for days, cutting off residents from supplies and the rest of society. This unique way of life, isolated and precarious, is in the process of radical change, as the mountain plateau known as Fjarðarheiði may soon be replaced with a 13-km tunnel. The Heath documents this pivotal change through mediums of film, photography and storytelling over the past several years.
