Erling Th. V. Klingenberg

Erling Th. V. Klingenberg (b. 1970) studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Halifax. He has organized a large number of exhibitions in Iceland and Denmark, and he is one of the founders of Kling & Bang gallerí (2003) and KlinK and BanK studios (2004). With an obsessive drive to define the role of “the artist” in a rock-star society as the foundation of his work, Erling is as interested in process as he is in final products. His approach fluctuates between humorous, critical, and sincere, using the history of art as both a source of objective and subjective material.
