Performances in Tvísöngur sound sculpture.

Spring’s Call of Nature by Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson. A storyteller, a performer, a singer, an object maker, an illustrator. Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson has a love for the absurd, by which is meant less an obsessive passion for the ridiculous, nonsensical or the odd, than a tender and caring attitude: he takes care of the absurd, he helps it to develop, he gives it a place alongside everything else where it can be your most disturbing neighbour and your best friend. Styrmir studied art in Amsterdam, after which his work has landed in gallery and theatre context internationally. He lives in Warsaw.

Echo of Oral Poetics by Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir is a performance and a soundart piece where the artist seeks to translate memory patterns into music. It is an echo of Icelandic oral poetics. Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir was born in 1987. She graduated with BA in visual art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2012 and held her first solo exhibition the following year. She has exhibited in many group exhibitions both here in Iceland and internationally. She also performs at poetry and music festivals. Her work often intertwines music, sound art, performance, poetry.

A part of the Assembly of the Hyperboreans and LungA.
