Dagmar Atladóttir

The work of Dagmar Atladóttir has been exhibited and performed at various institutions, galleries and art fairs such as  The Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, Museum Tent Rotterdam, Arts Santa Mónica, Amsterdam Art Fair, Grimm Museum in Berlin and more. Her work investigates the border between possible and impossible worlds and reality as a creational act consisting of a plurality of worlds; that possible worlds are a way of explaining probability, hypothetical statements, address notions of truth and speculate on the nature of fiction. Common themes throughout her work are The BRUT and The Wild as manifested within paganism, witchcraft or the aesthetics of horror for example. Her work seeks to alter normalities through odd rituals with the help of objects and performances. Resulting in natural/unnatural situations where sinister things lurk beneath the surface.

Dagmar is also half of the duo Atladóttir & d’Ors with friend and collaborator Laura d’Ors. The duo are the creators of the fictional country The Independent Republic of Bellona, among other projects. They occasionally carry out commercial assignments in art directing and conceptual design for brands such as: COMME des GARÇONS and Paco Rabanne.
