Högna Sigurðardóttir – Curator‘s Talk. Kjarvalsstaðir, Saturday 23 January 3 p.m.
Curator Guja Dögg Hauksdóttir conducts a guided tour through architect Högna Sigurðardóttir‘s exhibition. In Icelandic.
This first retrospective of the works of architect Högna Sigurðardóttir is prompted by the occasion of her eightieth birthday and the precious donation of her works to the Museum. The first woman to practice architecture in Iceland, Högna Sigurðardóttir has not been shy to try innovations in her work. Over the years she has won notice for working structure and interior as a single whole, integrating finishings, furniture, and flower pots with interior space as well as shaping buildings’ immediate surroundings in seamless accord with the larger whole of the man-made environment.
Högna Sigurðardóttir has lived and worked in France ever since her student days yet has created some of her best works in Iceland. She has received many international awards for her work. A detailed catalogue will accompany the exhibition. Curated by Guja Dögg Hauksdóttir. This exhibition is a joint project of the Reykjavík Art Museum and the Association of Icelandic Architects.
