Representing five of their artists this year, Reykjavík based gallery Hverfisgallerí will take part in CHART Art Fair this month in Copenhagen. The artists represented are Davíð Örn Halldórsson, Georg Guðni, Guðjón Ketilsson, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir a.k.a. Shoplifter and Sigurður Árni Sigurðsson.

CHART ART FAIR is the leading Nordic contemporary art fair held at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen. Since its inception, CHART has established itself as the international platform for contemporary art in the region.

CHART breaks with the traditional fair format by carefully curating the galleries’ artwork and presenting everything in unison as an exhibition, in the halls of Kunsthal Charlottenborg. The selection and curation is realised by the five founding galleries based in Copenhagen: Galleri Susanne Ottesen, Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, V1 Gallery, Andersen’s Contemporary and David Risley Gallery.

 

Davíð Örn Halldórsson (b. 1976) lives and works in Reykjavík. Halldórsson mainly works with painting as he has done since graduating from the Visual Arts department of The Icelandic Academy of the Arts in 2002. In this time, Halldórsson has explored unconventional methods of painting; painting and spraying with different paints on found objects. His earlier works are often composed of painted installations, painting on found furniture, floors, ceilings and walls.

Halldórsson’s works are often based on events of the daily life; a personal processing of his surroundings, carried out in a visual language, which references cartoons, graffiti, Pop-Art and Western Art History. His background in printing is as well evident in his works; it is the material ground on which the artist builds his practice on.

Halldórsson has held several solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions in Iceland and internationally. In the year 2013 he received the prestigious Carnegie Art Award grant to a younger artist.

 

Georg Guðni (1961 – 2011) played a prominent role in the local art scene in the eighties as one of the first contemporary Icelandic landscape painters. Instead of making the human existence the subject of his work as was the trend at that time, he painted pure nature. With this attitude he brought new impulses to the genre of landscape painting and to the medium of painting itself.

His landscape paintings follow a geometrical construction, while at the same time, they remain open to personal experiences. Due to their reflective and contemplative effect, they act as a mirror of the recipient’s mental landscape.

Georg Guðni’s paintings always have a connection to a social context. Nature, as he shows it, is simplified and to a certain level also objectified, but his works do not show illusion. Rather, they have a strong atmospheric effect and are recognizable by their formal, polished simplicity.

His works have been exhibited widely, in solo shows as well as in group exhibitions, in the Nordic countries and Western Europe, and also in the United States, South America and China.

Georg Guðni was born in Reykjavik in 1961. He studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts and graduated from Jan van Eyck Akademie in Holland 1987. He passed away in 2011 only 50 years old.

 

Guðjón Ketilsson (b. 1956) studied Fine Art at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts from 1974 until 1978 and graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Canada in 1980. Guðjón lives and works in Reykjavík.

Ketilsson has had over thirty solo shows and has participated in a number of group exibitions throughout Europe, North America and Australia. His works can be found in museum collections in Iceland and abroad, as well as in private collections. He has participated in various international residencies and has been invited to contribute to several public art competitions. Ketilsson received the DV-Cultural Prize in 2000 and the Einar Jónsson Art Museum Award in 2001. Ketilsson lives and works in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Ketilsson works mainly with drawing and sculpture. His work examines the human condition by way of its primary vehicle, the body. Ketilsson explorers time, memory and history by isolating, examining and experimenting with not only our corporeal dimensions, temperature and movement, but also our shoes, clothing and hairdos.

 

Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir aka Shoplifter is an Icelandic artist living in New York. She attended the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts from 1989 until 1993, and in 1996, she earned her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Hrafnhildur’s oeuvre has merited several honors including the 2011 Nordic Textile Award and the 2011Prince Eugen Medal for Artistic Achievement from the King and Royal Crown of Sweden. In 2008, Hrafnhildur Arnadóttir and a.v.a.f. were commissioned by MoMA to create a large window installation in New York. She also represented Iceland, alongside Hrafnkell Sigurðsson, at the Liverpool Biennial in the UK in September, 2010.

Arnadóttir makes sculptures, drawings and installations with various materials and found objects. Her works take on themes relating to vanity, self-image, fashion, beauty and popular myths, and often tackle notions that border on obsession or fetishism. Her body of work as a whole exists in the gray area between visual art, performance, and design and has been exhibited in numerous countries and featured in various publications.

Shoplifter has worked for several years exploring the use and symbolic nature of hair, and its visual and artistic potential. In her work, she addresses the history of our obsession with hair and how it is an ongoing manifestation of creativity in contemporary culture. Her synthetic and natural hair sculptures, site-specific instillations and wall murals can be decorative, horrific, or strictly abstract.

 

Sigurður Árni Sigurðsson has been active as an artist since 1991, when he completed his studies at the Institut des Hautes Études en Art Plastiques in Paris, France. His works have been the subject of over forty solo exhibitions and have been a part of numerable group shows. They can be seen in the collections of all the leading art museums in Iceland, as well as in various public and private collections throughout Europe.

Some of Sigurður Árni’s most prominant work has been installed in public areas such as the Sultartanga Hydroelectric Power Plant in Iceland (“Sólalada”, 2000), the Hlíð Assisted Living Residence in Akureyri, Iceland (“Ljós í skugga”, 2006), the National Bank of Iceland in Reykjavik (“Samhengi”, 2004), and the town of Loupian in the south of France (“L’Eloge de la Nature”, 2011). Sigurður Árni represented Iceland at the 1999 Venice Biennale, and in 2000, when Reykjavik was a European Capital of Culture, one of his works was chosen as the culture year’s emblem. He has been a professor at the Iceland Academy of Art and the Montpellier School of Arts (ESBAMA), and was selected as the 2000-2001 artist laureate by the city of Akureyri in Iceland.
