ArtAV chooses Panasonic for Icelandic art exhibition
ArtAV has utilised nine Panasonic display screens as part of Ragnar Kjartansson’s exhibition – God, I Feel So Bad, at the Reykjavik Art Museum, Iceland.
As part of the 17 week long exhibition held over the summer, Ragnar Kjartansson opened the doors to his first museum show in his homeland. The exhibition reflects Kjartansson’s ode to the arts in all its glory, from music, theatre and film, to literature and visual arts.
The installation took place at the Reykjavik Art Museum, and included the installation of nine Panasonic professional displays varying in size from 55” to 84”. ArtAV’s custom built Hyperdeck system was used for the playback of media.
The Full HD screens including 3x TH-84EF1, 3x TH-75EF1, 1x TH-65LFE8, and 2x TH-55LFE8E created a nine screen, wall mounted piece, chosen and created specific to Kjartansson’s work titled, Scenes from Western Culture.
“Ragnar Kjartansson approached us at ArtAV requesting that we do an installation which solely specified exhibition quality LED screens in varied sizes,” explains Nick Joyce, Director for ArtAV. “We decided to use Panasonic’s display models due to their extremely slim bezel, making them perfect for art installations and exhibitions.”
Lucy Meredith, Product Marketing Specialist for Panasonic UK, said, “The use of our displays in exhibitions such as this is rapidly growing, and it is great to hear the gallery was extremely happy with the installation. With a narrow frame and slim design, Panasonic displays are perfect for any interior design scheme, drawing attention to the image itself and not how it’s delivered.”
