Anne is inspired by nature in both projection as well as material use, often using elements found in the wilderness to evoke natural mysticism in her work.

‘Into The Mind’ Film Premiere Bío Paradís

20:00 From 2,200 ISK

Blurring the line between dream state and reality, ‘Into The Mind’ will let you look into the psyche of a skier who has accepted a lofty challenge – to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. Through astonishing photography, you will be taken on a journey around the globe, from Alaska to Bolivia, Switzerland, Nepal and Costa Rica. But ‘Into The Mind’ also poses philosophical questions about what it is that inspires us to overcome life’s obstacle and what we learn along the way. The result is both visually stunning and moving.
