Akureyri Art Museum Kaupvangsstræti 8-12, Akureyri

Freyja Reynisdóttir uses her work to conduct performative experiments in the search for subjective “Truths“, deeming the artistic experience suitable for communication regarding the undefined yet tangible in our perceptions and understanding of the self or our supposed shared reality. Freyja approaches her subjects through her own writing. She creates formulas and recipes, objects, drawings, …
