Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir: A Complete dream 3 – 6 – 9
13 May–31 May
Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir’s solo exhibition A Complete dream 3 – 6 – 9 in Sculpture Garden juxtaposes works shaped and recycled from various materials. There, among other things, about 1.5 tons of concrete clumps from the walls of a neighboring house at Ægisgata 7, more specifically the outer walls of the artist’s studio, are visible. We can look at it this way: the studio is a kind of armor for the artist’s experiments in doubt and creativity. The material is loaded with symbolism. Katrín Inga works on the pieces with her body, and through the process of these works she has altered them just as if they had passed through the digestive tract. A possible alimentary tract of ideas and philosophical speculations about the existence and cycle of man, sculptural impact-ideas of excrement. The thread of the exhibition is the shame and the rhythm between two openings in the body: the ass and the mouth. What is shame but a gaping wound, a gaping opening on our bodies, a wormhole. The exhibition, Complete dream 3 – 6 – 9, unfolds in rugged found materials through personal close-ups of the artist, but there you are possibly in some kind of inner garden, the inner workings of the body, a co-humanized landscape.
The exhibition runs until May 31 and at the opening the artist will offer grilled sausages from the Pylsumeistarnum on a grill sculpture and ice-cold beer from Ægir Brewery. The exhibition is supported by the City of Reykjavík, Ægir Brugghús, Pylsumeistarinn, Slippfélagið, Gæðamold, Vatn og Veitur and Fyrirbæri ehf.
