Artist Talk: Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir
Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir´s exhibition, This is Our First and Last Work, opened on August 19. This Thursday, September 1st at 6 pm, the curator Bryndís Erla Hjálmarsdóttir will talk to the artist about her work, which includes drawing, sculpture, text and video. Sigurjónsdóttir’s display is poetic and delicate but in the background she poses intricate questions on the eternal search entwined in all creative activity.
Ingibjörg (b. 1985 in Reykjavík, Iceland) completed a BA from the Fine Art department of the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2010 and has since done exhibitions, performances and projects in Iceland and abroad. Alongside her artistic practice she is a board member at artist run Kling & Bang gallery and writes regular columns for the Scandinavian KUNSTforum and the Icelandic Art Center. She lives and works in Reykjavík.
Exhibitions in Gallery D at Hafnarhús focus primarily on artists who have not previously held one-person shows in Iceland’s major galleries. The objective of the exhibition series is to offer promising artists the chance to work on their own terms in a public gallery, and to draw the attention of museum visitors to new and interesting developments in the art world. Sigurjónsdóttir‘s is the 27th exhibition in this series.
Admission included in museum ticket.
