Njála

Back to overview

The project

Enter Njála is a joint Nordic project produced by Gagarín, Reykjavík in collaboration with Borgarbókasafnið Reykjavíkur, Sølvberget Stavanger, Albertslund Library, Lund Folk Libraries, Gentofte Libraries, and Frederiksberg Library.

We collaborated with the Scandinavian libraries through workshops that resulted in this very poetic interpretation of Njálssaga. Its aim is not to replicate the story of Njála, but to let visitors engage with the more abstract themes that run throughout the book: pride and shame. The installation reads your face and presents you with a sentence from the book that reflects your mood!
