Karl Ómarsson

Karl Ómarsson (b. 1975). Kalli’s practice exists in a range of different mediums such as: drawing, sculpture, installation, environmental work, photography and video. It is consistently rooted in performance as a research tool and point of departure.

He strives to remain balanced between a quixotic faith in subjective imagination and the methodological rigour of research based art. Possibly a sleeping logician himself, the artist says of this method: I try to work with my head in the clouds while the feet stay firmly on the ground. Kalli lives and works in Seoul, South Korea.
