Sindri Leifsson

Sindri Leifsson (b. 1988) raises questions about the autarchy of work and the product it yields as well as pointing towards the process itself. The alienation of labor is perhaps in contrast to the objects where the process, the labour as such, becomes the leader instead of the emerging product. This derives partly from a fascination of tools where they are used to build other tools and the definite line between a tool and a sculpture is blurred. All details are in a state of constant renewal and traces are purposefully left on site. There is no obvious conclusion but the possibility of progress.

Sindri graduated from Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2011 and earned an MFA degree from Malmö Art Academy in 2013. Recently he has been based between Reykjavik and Stockholm and is associated with the artist run space Kunstschlager.
