Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir: The Only Constant is Change
28 May–2 October
Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir’s installation The Only Constant is Changebears an element of familiarity as the artist revisits and combines components from former works in a new manner. The multifaceted piece conforms to its own inner operating system on one hand and the presence of guests on the other, disguising the starting point of motion.
The only constant is change is a materialized reflection, a celebratory nod even, towards the systematic thinking which has been Ingunn’s modus operandi, although currently shown in an expanded version. Through the years Ingunn has developed and worked in alignment with personalized systematic processes; with The Only Constant is Change she shifts her focus towards the technical systems and systemic processes that govern, directly and indirectly, humanity and the world at large. The piece evokes questions around algorithms, coding, political and economic systems together with internet scrolling alike; putting personal agency and influence into question.
Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir (b. 1976) graduated with a MA degree in Fine Art from the Iceland University of the Arts in 2017 and a BA degree in Fine Art from the same institution in 2007. She also holds a BA degree in Art History from the University of Aarhus, received in 2002. Ingunn works mainly in painting, weaving and installation. In her work, Ingunn has an inclination to extend the field of abstract painting into an open system, where the work is animated by the viewer and the space through direct participation.
