Artist Talk - Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter
Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter will represent Iceland in the Icelandic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2019. She will talk about her works at Ásmundarsafn on her exhibition Invasion II.
The work of Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter is at once romantic, silly, funny and beautiful. She has experimented with opposites, delicate materials and crafts, as well as clutter and bizarreness.
In 2018, four incursions are planned into the exhibition Art for the People in Ásmundarsafn, where the sculptor´s work is examined from the viewpoint of different periods in his career. Some of his pieces will be replaced with the work of practising artists.
Four artists have been invited to exhibit their work, creating a private dialogue with Sveinsson´s work. They are Guðmundur Thoroddsen, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter, Margrét Helga Sesseljudóttir and Matthías Rúnar Sigurðsson. They all create sculptures from diverse materials and their work gives an interesting view of the development of three-dimensional art, its materials and subjects.
In Icelandic. Free with admission.
