An art exhibition will open this weekend in the Sculpture Garden in Reykjavík city center. One of the sculptures is a sound sculpture by artist Finnbogi Pétursson. The piece consists of Reykjavík Mayor's snoring.

Sleep with Jón Gnarr, Mayor of Reykjavik

Mayor Jón Gnarr got a recorder from Finnbogi and recorded himself sleeping. Finnbogi now has permission to use the recording for his sculpture, where everyone can listen to the mayor sleeping.

"I am trying to get to the core of the city, and you can't get much closer to the core than the Mayor in his deep sleep", Finnbogi told

Dream with the Mayor

"The idea is that people can come to the garden at any time, lie down and dream with the mayor"

The recording is 8 hours long and will be played on repeat all summer, or until August.

The exhibition will be opened this Saturday at noon.
