The Sky in a Room by Ragnar Kjartansson

3rd February – 11th March


National Museum Cardiff

With support from the Derek Williams’ Trust and Art Fund



When you are here with me

This room no longer has any walls, but trees

Infinite trees.

When you are here, near to me

This violet ceiling

No, no longer exists


A harmonica sounds 
It seems to me like an organ 
That vibrates for you and for me 
Up in the immensity of the sky

For you and for me 
In the sky


(From Il cielo in una stanza,written by Gino Paoli)
