The Factory 

The Factory is an annual art exhibition, held in the old fish factory in Djúpavík and the newly established gallery The Tub / Balinn Art Space in Þingeyri, Iceland. The focal point of the group show is to explore the artists’ personal perception of Iceland.


As a multidisciplinary exhibit, The Factory showcases a multitude of visual arts including: drawings, sculptures, paintings, video art, photography, and art installations.

This fosters a diverse and dynamic show, welcoming a broad audience.


The vision of The Factory is to unify a series of artworks under the theme ‘Iceland,’ which highlights the beauty of the country and the creative power it gives people. Contrasts merge and unify inside of the old buildings. Thus, works reference the spatial and environmental perception of Djúpavík and of Iceland as a whole.


Iceland has inspired thousands of artists, thus proving how the wildness of nature can become the wildness of man. The topic 'Iceland' is tireless and timeless.
