Daniel Lismore


The exhibition Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Already Taken by Daniel Lismore is taking place in Harpa during the Reykjavík Art Festival, June 2nd – 30th 2018.

Daniel Lismore is known for elaborate and extravagant ensembles that brilliantly combine haute couture with charity-shop finds, yards of vintage fabrics and tartans, found objects, ribbons, feathers, chain mail, shells, ethnic jewellery, retro accessories, millinery and more in an expression of eccentric, creative energy.

Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken is the first museum exhibition by Daniel. It offers immersion in Lismore’s unique sartorial point of view and consists of life-size sculptural ensembles, each worn by the artist at one time and are reflections of his own multidimensional identity and tapestry of his journey to his true self.
