Snorri Ásmundsson

Snorri Ásmundsson (b. 1966) is an artist who seeks to affect society through public events. He has intentionally disturbed the Icelandic community for some time with his extensive and remarkable performances in which he works with social taboos of politics, sex and religion. He has observed the reactions of society when commonly accepted values are turned upside down—for example, when a powerless individual takes into his own hands authority that normally is given to others by different predetermined rules. Howsoever people react to these grandstand performances, Snorri critically challenges social and religious values and seeks sharp responses, thus examining the limits of his fellow man and of himself.
