You Are Here
26 November, 2022–5 March, 2023
Vena Naskręcka and Michael Richardt are performance artists, and this exhibition will be a display of where they are at this particular point in time, and a documentation of what occupies their minds at the moment. They are here and now, foreign citizens in Iceland, making their mark on the Reykjanes Art Museum where they will rule for a while.
Vena Naskręcka (1986) works in visual arts in an inter-disciplinary way, with performances, sculptures, found objects, and video, and she bases her work for instance on philosophy, neuro-science, disability studies, and technology. Naskręcka expresses this with her body, which she sees as a tool for visual, emotional, and intellectual communication.
Naskręcka graduated with a MA degree in fine art from CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, in Cork, Ireland, a BA degree in fine art from Hanze University Groningen – Academy Minerva, the Netherlands, in addition to studying ceramics at the Jacek Malczewski School of Fine Arts in Czestochowa, Poland. Naskręcka was born in Czestochowa, Poland, but lives and works in Reykjanesbær.
