Q & A


Artist talk with questions and answers from Birgir Snæbjörn Birgisson artist and Mika Hannula curator.
Birgir’s work addresses political, social and historical issues in the present day. He expertly combines sensitivity, tenderness and the sober content of his work, and the colours in the paintings almost seem to be fading and vanishing, which beckons the viewer to them. Birgir’s approach is delicate, almost whispering and heightens the senses. The earnest, murmured narrative conjured up by Birgir compels the onlooker to use critical thinking, by unveiling the innocent character and all the gentleness that emanates from Birgir’s works.
