Katrín Sigurðardóttir: Til staðar
The exhibition TIL STAÐAR is an installation in the natural environment of Skarðsströnd.
Through photographs and video, the exhibition in Nýp Project Space documents
the making of the installation. TIL STAÐAR is one of three exhibitions/land-artworks by Katrín Sigurðardóttir in three separate regions of Iceland: Hoffell at Vatnajökull, Skarðströnd in Breiðafjörður and Svalbarðshreppur in Norður-Þingeyjarsýsla.
The principal theme of the work is the interplay between local resources, human intervention and the processes of nature itself. The exhibition in Nýp Project Space consists of photographic works and an archive,
documenting the making of the works.
During her successful 30-year career, Katrín Sigurðardóttir has exhibited sculptures, drawings, photographic art and large-scale installations that attempt to transform the subjective experiences of the viewer. In recent years, she has worked with fundamental processes and the materials of the earth in her art. Katrín’s work has been exhibited widely, both in Iceland and abroad.
She represented Iceland at the Venice Biennale, the São Paulo Biennale in Brazil, Momentum in Norway, and the Rabat Biennale in Morocco. Her 2010 solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York attracted widespread attention.See interview in Places Journal.
