Time plays a pivotal role in Hjordis’s work. She explores the effects of time and its impact on us. Her most recent work is the self-published book, Put All Our Treasures Together, in which a collection of images that were taken during a distinct period in her life are unveiled. We often fail to pay attention to events that may at first seem insignificant but in hindsight are our most valuable treasures. These images were somewhat furtively collected in parallel with the artist’s daily life over a long period of time. A rootless time of wandering and relocating. The material was made prior to the inception of the body of work, and only in putting the material together could the story present itself.

”These are the treasures we collect. Like invisible jewellery we fill our pockets with whilst wandering through the world. Only with the passage of time, can we put them all together.” – Hjordis Eythorsdottir
