Elín Hansdóttir (b. 1980), who studied at the Iceland Academy of the Arts, currently lives and works in Berlin. Elín’s installations create situations in which the viewer is drawn into a physical dialogue with her work, encouraging the possibility to re-evaluate one’s relation to space and place. Her work subtly encourages her audiences’ active interaction with light, color, or sound in pre-existing or created architectural spaces, elements that change based on a person’s bodily position in relation to the mechanisms of her site-specific creations. The apparent simplicity of form belies the complexity of her installations, where experience carries more importance than interpretation.
