Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir


Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir (b. 1985) graduated with Bachelor of Fine Arts from Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2009 and received Masters of Fine Art from Glasgow School of Art in 2013.

In her works Þorgerður considers ideas and definitions of identity, places and the field of systems we use to understand the natural world and how these might be interpreted in more subjective areas through memory and literature. In recent works she has been looking at modern artefacts and how fragmented narratives can be constructed from collected history and objects.

Þorgerður has exhibited her work in Iceland, Scandinavia and the UK as well as heading exhibitions and artists´ publications. Since 2014 she has been the director of the Living Art Museum in Reykjavík and serves on the artistic board of Sequences Real Time Art Festival.
