In the exhibition “Distance”, the artist duo Knaggi enters the digital realm using smartphone technology, apps and social media to explore the ethical, evolutionary, cultural and social implications of living and co-existing with the internet and technology as a presence in our everyday lives. Contemporary culture envelopes us in virtual reality, and while the substance it consists of may be ethereal, the contents exist in reality and have substantial influence beyond the confines of the computer. It is on those boundaries of the digital and the physical which the majority of their collaborative work takes place.

Knaggi is an artist duo consisting of Arngrímur Borgþórsson (b. 1979,
Hafnarfjörður, Iceland) and Andreas Knag-Danielsen (b. 1983, Bergen, Norway).
They work in Malmö, Sweden. They have been collaborating since 2011.
