Opening of the exhibition D38 Ragnheiður Káradóttir.

Ragnheiður Káradóttir is the 38th artist to exhibit in Reykjavik Art Museum‘s exhibition series in D-Gallery. Ragnheiður is born in 1984 and lives and works in Reykjavik. She received a BA in Fine Arts from Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2010 and graduated in the spring of 2016 with an MFA in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in New York.

Ragnheiður uses everyday objects and materials in her works, modifying them and giving them a new and unexpected role. The merger of familiar forms and materials results in exotic objects open to interpretatiopn - everyday objects  receive a make-over and dead objects are personified. The D-Gallery exhibition series started in 2007, where up-and-coming artists, who are shaping the local contemporary art scene, are invited to hold their first solo show in a public museum.
