SUBSTANCE - SIGRÚN HRÓLFSDÓTTIR

  • 4.12.2014 - 31.1.2015, Listasafn Íslands

In her work, Sigrún Hrólfsdóttir explores the non-material realm of emotions and the interplay of the inner world and the personal with the outer world of ideas and symbols. In her newest work, emotional activity is materialized in a straightforward way. Hands pull colorful pieces of fabric from a head, and a face is lit up in various colors, a sincere and almost childlike adoration and idealization of the field of emotions, inspired by the expressionistic paintings of Gabriele Munther and images from modern fMRI scanners.

Sigrún Hrólfsdóttir works in different media. Her last solo exhibition in Kunstschlager, Reykjavik was called The Future Ones, and consisted of paintings and installation of lights and sheer fabrics. Sigrun is also a member of The Icelandic Love Corporation, a group of three artists. They work in all possible media with roots in performance art. Their work has been exhibited around the globe and is featured in various public and private collections.
