ASSEMBLAGE

Sigurjón Ólafsson's wooden constructions

  • 3.9.2016 - 17.9.2017, Listasafn Sigurjóns Ólafssonar

Sigurjón Ólafsson is known as a traditional sculptor, modeller of clay and plaster pieces and a welder of iron structures. In addition a large proportion of his later sculptures out of wood can be classified as assemblages, consisting as they do of assorted wooden parts, found or reworked, constructed around a given spatial core.

This show features a selection of these later assemblages, chosen by the artist's widow, Birgitta Spur. Art historian Aðalsteinn Ingólfsson writes an introduction to the show.
