Emma Heiðarsdóttir: Light Switch
1 April–27 April
In her work, Emma Heiðarsdóttir (b. 1990) deals with the shifting boundaries between sculpture and architecture, art and life. Her works are often based on interventions into the spaces or surroundings where they are exhibited and tend to challenge our habitual view of the environment. Her exhibition Light Switch shows an effort to examine space from its limiting and objective qualities, which form a framework for physical and subjective experience. Viewers activate certain works with their bodies and limits in space may induce ideas of other limits.
Emma studied at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2010-13 and completed her MFA from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, in 2018. In 2020 she was nominated for the Icelandic Art Prize – Motivational Award, for her solo exhibition Margin, in the D-gallery at Reykjavík Art Museum. Additionally her works have been exhibited at i8 Gallery, Gallery Úthverfa, Kling & Bang, Kópavogur Art Museum, Kunsthall Oslo and Einstein Kultur Munich among other places.
