FESTIVAL INFO

KIOSK 108 — Captain’s Bridge / Stýrishús — NO PANIC ehf. is an independent art project in Seyðisfjörður, dedicated to fostering cultural growth through a unique blend of art, music and performance. Set in the transformed captain’s cabin of a 1969 fishing boat, KIOSK 108 is more than a venue; it’s a cultural oasis presenting public art, site-specific interventions and happenings.

Featuring a great lineup of acts curated by captain Monika Fryčová for this Reykjavík Arts Festival collaboration, KIOSK 108 offers a magical experience full of surprises. The programme showcases exclusive performances in a vibrant fusion of avant-garde, psychedelic, rock’n’roll, folk, jazz, punk and metal, creating a diverse and passionate celebration of the underground scene. Monika Frycova’s play, “Captain – navigating BRIDGE”, creatively explores the ship’s wheelhouse as a symbol of diverse artistic expression. Kiosk 108 will be running as an art piece throughout the summer.

The PEARL of Seyðisfjörður! Swing by and get swept away on a sub-Arctic tiki glitter ride taking you back to a poem you wrote when you were a child - or just have a tasty coffee and enjoy the view.
Coolest Bar in the Universe! Location Awesome! Owner Awesome! Atmosphere Awesome! We happened upon this place in June, stayed 5 hours, made friends and told stories! Monika the owner made this family of 6 feel like long lost friends from America ! We will never forget and hope to make it back soon… I for one got it immortalized on my arm as a tattoo!

This is such a one of a kind bar! We came across it while visiting Seyðisfjörður during our ring road trip. Absolutely loved it! Very friendly owner/ server. Very cool ambiance. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area who fancies a drink.

Amazing! We recommend this place to EVERYONE! Nicest people run the bar, so arty and picturesque and the drinks and fare are fabulous! Fabulous eclectic music choices. We met some of the most interesting world travelers …we wound up spending a few hours expecting only to have a short stay. We hiked a 2.5 mile trail not to far to chase numerous waterfalls. Whales were in the bay. We will have great memories of Kiosk 108 and the area. Go!

Concept of KIOSK 108

Panel 1

Old former captain cabin “Styrishús” transformed into new original KIOSK 108

–   architectural, philosophical concept / platform for art and culture,
with extra function of street food vendor

  • location (historic part of Seyðisfjörður near lagoon) as a crucial  reminder for locals (Icelanders) and outsiders (foreigners, travellers, guests)
  • new experience : “local” versus “outsider” – reshaping of public consciousness through landscapes and architecture
  • focus on preservation of the fishing cultural heritage and fresh dynamic image of the town

–   awaking old tradition,  innovating “something” what is missing 

Old captain cabin “Styrishús” of the Icelandic fishing boat : Friðrik Sigurðsson from the 1969, has been transformed into new original KIOSK 108 as a performance project, art sculpture with extra function of street food vendors. 

Stýrishús” (KIOSK 108) has been recognised as a treasure of Seyðisfjörður but has been sadly abandoned for decades in peripheral location. 

In summer 2021, KIOSK 108 was moved into the historic part of the town, to the already existing walking path, but which is seldom used. 

The main idea is structuring new social space, near the lagoon, centered through architecture.  

The Boathouse as a gallery in the larger gallery that is Seyðisfjörður, in the larger gallery that is Iceland.

Venture for various events, music, theater, visual arts, but also commercial enterprise. KIOSK 108 will emphasize sea food courses, hot dogs and ice /cream, coffee and soft drinks.

At the moment the object is in the process of construction. 

Living on the edge with a beautiful view.

Kiosk 108 in media

When the COVID situation came, I thought it’s very useless for me to sit behind my computer and wait to get sick. So, I started to think about how I can make public art for outsiders and local people, to make something meaningful with this object. Monika answered in the interview for The National Icelandic TV RÚV.

The small building located in Seyðisfjörður in East Iceland is meant to be a standing poem about time. The Grapevine news reported.
