Egill Sæbjörnsson’s (b. 1973) art is an unusual fusion of music, sound, video and installation in which he often appears himself as part of his exhibitions. He handles a variety of media and expressive idioms with remarkable facility. Harnessing computers, projections and musical instruments in his performances, he assumes different personae in each new context. In addition to his visual and installation art, he has a freestanding career in music and has released several solo albums.
Egill studied at the University of Paris, St. Denis and the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. Since 1999 he has been sharing his time between Reykjavík and Berlin.
