Artist Talk by Katrín Elvarsdóttir in D-16 Hafnarhús - Sunday 7 March 3 p.m.

Katrín Elvarsdóttir talks about her installation Neverland in gallery D and her career.

Katrín Elvarsdóttir‘s exhibition, Neverland is the 16th exhibition in the D-Gallery project of Reykjavik Art Museum.

The series was nominated to the cultural award of DV 2009.

In a text written for the exhibition Sigrún Sigurðardóttir states: „In recent years Katrín Elvarsdóttir has drawn her viewers into a world where fiction and reality are confluent. She uses the photograph as a means to create an imaginary world that springs from reality itself, thus bringing out an alien quality in surroundings normally seen as commonplace.”

Katrín Elvarsdóttir received her B.F.A. degree from the Art Institute of Boston in 1993 and has since exhibited widely in the United States and Europe as well as in Iceland.
