The exhibition Under Deconstruction was first commissioned by the Icelandic Art Center for the Pavilion of Iceland at the 54th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia- and curated by Ellen Blumenstein. Those projects are now on display at the National Gallery of Iceland. The exhibition explores existential and current socio-economic and political issues in Iceland and elsewhere, using video, performance, sculpture, sound, and music. It is a combination of newly conceived and ongoing projects, such as Constitution of the Republic of Iceland (2008/2011), Your Country Doesn’t Exist (2003, ongoing) and Exorcising Ancient Ghots (2011). On the building’s facade, a neon sign bearing the slogan “Your Country Doesn’t Exist” in Icelandic.
