Group exhibition with four Icelandic artists that lately have been very active in the Icelandic art scene.
Curator Bjarki Bragason.
Claudia Hausfeld (b. 1980) works primarily with the deconstruction of the photographic image, creating spaces that play with the reliability of the visual. Questions about the representation of what is visible are translated into objects and text works, combining sculpture, images and sound. Claudia was born in Berlin and lived in Switzerland and Denmark before moving to Iceland in 2010. She studied photography at the Zürich University of the Arts and received a BA from the Icelandic Art Academy in 2012. Hausfeld currently lives and works in Reykjavik, where she co-manages the photography workshop at the Iceland Art Academy and serves as a member of the board of Nýló, the Living Art Museum.
Elísabet Brynhildardóttir lives and works in Reykjavík, Iceland. She graduated from University College for the Creative Arts, UK, in 2007. Ever since her graduation she has participated in various exhibitions and projects. Her works have been shown in Akureyri Art Museum, The Factory in Hjalteyri, The Living Art Museum and Reykjavík Art Museum. In her works Elísabet explores the boundaries of drawing whilst contemplating ideas of impermanence, security and time.
Eva Ísleifsdóttir er fædd árið 1982 í Reykjavík. Hún hefur búið og starfað í Reykjavík og Aþenu í Grikklandi frá árinu 2015. Hún lauk MFA-gráðu frá skúlptúrdeildinni í Edinburgh College of Art í Skotlandi árið 2010 og BA-námi frá Listaháskóla Íslands árið 2008. Á síðustu sýningu vann Eva með ímynd listamannsins og listaverksins og voru hversdagurinn og samfélagsrýni henni hugleikin. Handverkið var til staðar en gjarnan er það ásýnd eftirmyndarinnar eða fúsksins sem haldið er á lofti og líkist fremur leikhúsmunum en upphöfnum höggmyndum.
Sindri Leifsson (b. 1988 Reykjavík) graduated with an MFA degree from Malmö Art Academy in 2013 after finishing a BA degree in Fine Art at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2011. Symbols and the treatment of materials are repeated themes in Sindri’s works as well as surroundings and elements in the society. His last exhibition stretched itself out of the exhibition space where ambiguous sculptures manifested themselves in Kópavogur Art Museum’s surroundings, shifting the focus towards city planning and spatial behaviour.
