Sunneva Ása Weisshappel: Undirlög
We invite you to the opening of Sunneva Ása Weisshappel’s exhibition, Undirlög.
Sunneva Ása Weisshappel graduated with a degree in visual arts from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2013.
Paintings, performances, installations, videos, costumes and set design have been Sunneva’s forms of expression. She has received numerous awards and nominations for her work.In the exhibition Undirlög, Sunneva shows works made in process. A canvas that is sewn together and each layer treated differently. Together, the layers form a work that is multifaceted, raw and time-related. The canvas becomes a kind of performance and what happens in the studio does not have a fixed starting point and is created in flow.
“My subjects in painting are the subject of living moments and the external and internal state of the human being. I work with the fusion of mind and body and use life as a research platform. For me, painting is a two-dimensional state of mind that I explore by creating resistance, tension, unity and / or chaos with the working methods I have adopted. My paintings are like the human being who is complex, beautiful, ugly, multifaceted, full of contrasts, mistakes, feelings and contradictions.”
