Welcome to Sweet Salone and the exhibition Sense of place


To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Aurora Foundation we invite you to the opening of SWEET SALONE, Wednesday 15th November at 6:00PM in KronKron Laugavegur 63 (entrance is from Vitastigur).

We will be celebrating a colorful collaboration between two Icelandic design labels, Kron by KronKron and As We Grow, with local crafts people in Sierra Leone.

We wholeheartedly believe that through sharing ideas, working together and learning from one another we can make a profound impact and improve lives.

An exhibition of photographs, Sense of place, by Birta Ólafsdóttir will open at the same time. The photographs depict the atmosphere of various workspaces of Aurora’s collaborators in Sierra Leone in a compelling way.

In these photographs she chose moments of tranquillity to communicate the action. One perceives the time before and after the photograph is taken. While no one is there we feel the presence of the people who work here and the aura they leave behind. The atmosphere is the subject of these photographs, an abstract phenomenon that exists in endless variations and reveals everything without a single word.

The exhibition will be open until 15th January 2018.
