On Culture: The creative whirlwind Ragnar Kjartansson

We were lucky enough to see the new Ragnar Kjartansson show at The Barbican this week.

It’s a wonderful retrospective on one of contemporary art’s most relentlessly creative characters.

Opening with a polyphonic troubadour installation, set-up as a dishevelled houseparty you are quickly transported into the mind of Ragnar Kjartansson.

There are recurring themes, primarily of repetition itself. The show touches on aspects of performance, of love, of intimacy and examines time and creativity. It’s an expansive and quite brilliant show – highly recommended.

Find out more on The Barbican website.
