Elín Hansdóttir

Elín Hansdóttir (b. 1980), who studied at the Iceland Academy of the Arts, currently lives and works in Berlin. Elín’s installations create situations in which the viewer is drawn into a physical dialogue with her work, encouraging the possibility to re-evaluate one’s relation to space and place. Her work subtly encourages her audiences’ active interaction with light, color, or sound in pre-existing or created architectural spaces, elements that change based on a person’s bodily position in relation to the mechanisms of her site-specific creations. The apparent simplicity of form belies the complexity of her installations, where experience carries more importance than interpretation.
