Artist Talk: Matthías Rúnar Sigurðsson
Among other things, Matthías Rúnar Sigurðsson makes stone sculptures. His classic method resonates interestingly with the work of Ásmundur Sveinsson and it is intriguing to see a young and promising stone sculptor presenting his work in Ásmundarsafn.
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 a.k.a. 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.
