The Icelandic Art Prize 2019
The nominees for the Icelandic Art Prize has been announced. The prize will be awarded in two categories: Artist of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year.
Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter Nervescape VIII
The year 2019 at Kiasma, Helsinki, will kick off in February with a show by the internationally renowned New York-based Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, also known as Shoplifter. For Kiasma’s fifth floor she will create a site-specific installation NERVESCAPE VIII. The subtly humorous installation made from synthetic hair allows viewers to enter into a colorful world and to pet the hair “as if it were a shy old mammoth,” like the artist describes it. Shoplifter will represent Iceland at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
