MARINA REES

 
 
 
 




This work sprung from early 20th century photography seen at the Seyðisfjörður Local History Heritage Museum (Iceland). The photographs were depicting costumed people from the local fishing village, entertaining themselves yearly through plays. I set out to recreate one of them which was covered in mussel shells, bringing it back to life and taking it out of a museum's context with its glassed displays.
