PATH by Elin Hansdóttir with text by Rebecca Solnit
PATH by Elín Hansdóttir, published by Crymogea.
In the book PATH, the subjective and objective aspects of the installation PATH come together, through the interaction of text and images. The book is suggestive of the role of memory when reconstructing experience; of how tactile elements fuse to form a whole which is on the one hand determined by the structure of the installation and on the other by the more abstract experiences of each individual encountering the work.
The installation PATH, by Elín Hansdóttir has been exhibited in four different countries; at Maribel Lopez Gallery Berlin, the National Gallery of Iceland, Reykjavík, at den Frie Udstillingsbygning Copenhagen, and currently at the Wood Street Galleries in Pittsburgh, U.S.A.
Hansdóttir has in recent years focused on large installations which are generally based on spatial investigations, that gain significance through people´s movement and behaviour in the space. She has installed works in a number of international venues including Hamburger Bahnhof Museum für Gegenwart Berlin, the National Gallery of Iceland, Frieze Projects London, Reykjavik Art Museum, and ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany. Hansdóttir,(b.1980) lives and works in Berlin.
Rebecca Solnit has been widely recognized for her work, which all entail a multidisciplinary approach to culture and the arts, often from the perspective of politics and philosophy. Her best known works include Wanderlust and A Fieldguide to Getting Lost. Solnit (b. 1961) lives and works in San Francisco.
