Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson

Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson is an visual, sound and performance artist born in Akureyri, Iceland in 1977.  He studied Sonology at the Royal Conservatory Den Haag, Holland in 1997 to 1998, and received MFA at Fachochshcule fur bilende kunst Hannover, Germany in 2004. Sigmarsson exhibits his paintings & drawings internationally but is probably most known for his energetic performances at a wide array of venues. His approach is that of the trembling artist, struggling to make sense and direction out of a creative impulse. Regardless of the medium, there is a continuous search for order and chaos throughout his body of work. With his series of drawings Sigmarsson distorts the normal, daily life by drawing very common objects in an abstract way. For some time he has been releasing solo recordings with albums on Trente Oiseaux, ERS, Helen Scarsdale, Fire Inc., Hanson Records, Bawag Contemporary Vienna, Korm Plastics, Bottrop Boy, Ultra Eczema and De Player.  

 

Sigtryggur lives and works in Ghent, Belgium, where he has been working with Ghent gallery Tatjana Pieters and has taken part in two exhibitions in the gallery space as well as being presented by the gallery at various art fairs.

Solo exhibitions of Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson include Galerie Tatjana Pieters, Ghent (BE), Lindenau, Leipzig (DE),Castle Insterburg, Tchernyakhovsk (RU), Museums Quartier (AUS), Kunstschlager, Reykjavik (IS), Der Grieche, Berlin (DE), National Gallery of Iceland, Reykjavik (IS), Rocksbox Fine Art, Portland (USA), Hectoliter, Brussels, Stadslimiet, Antwerpen & Basement Gallery, Vienna (AT).
