Edith Hammar: Well-being

4 August31 October

Edith Hammar: Well-being in Gallery Underpass.

On the forth of august Edith Hammar´s exhibition Well – being opens in Gallery Underpass on Hverfisgata 76 in Reykjavik.

Edith Hammar (b. 1992 Helsinki) is a visual artist who is known for large and powerful ink drawings made either on paper or as wall pieces. Their drawings feature recurring motifs which are in many ways autobiographical, focusing on the experiences and images of gender non-conforming characters, socialising, relaxing, and getting dressed or undressed in various casual but utopian settings.

The often large-scale drawings invite the viewer into a sort of portal, a window onto a safe and blissful dimension where both artist and onlooker can test out desires and needs.

Everyday objects take centre-stage in these fantasies, suddenly lighting a candle nestled between ass cheeks can make total sense, or shaving someone’s head is the most romantic thing in the world.
In 2020 Hammar released their debut comic book Homo Line (Förlaget M) in Finland, and as of 2022 their works are in the permanent collection of Modern Museum of Art in Stockholm. They hold a BA in fine art from the Royal Academy of Fine arts in Stockholm.
For their exhibition in Gallery Underpass Edith Hammar has created new work which is drawn directly on the walls of the gallery space.

Well-being opens as a part of Reykjavík Pride 2022.

The exhitibition is ongoing until the end of October.
