In the past few months Hallgrímur Pétursson has been remembered in various ways. A lot of images have been drawn up of the poet. You could almost say that we have gained a number of him. This exhibition is dedicated to the poet and originates from the Hallgrímur of my youth. Hallgrímur from the poetry-book we read at school, with the strange beard and the sad eyes. Hallgrímur, who wrote the wisdom-verses, and not the least, the leprous poet and peasant farmer who lost his children.
