At Hafnarhús, works by Erró are always on display. The theme of this exhibition is art history itself: over the years, Erró has established a close and creative relationship with that history.

The icelandic artist is well known for creating his own visual world in his collages; and in this exhibition we see works in which he has borrowed images and fragments of pictures by some of the leading artists in history, such as Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger.

He also references the work of lesser-known artists of different periods. In that way Erró may be said to write his own version of the history of art, through his works.
