Ongoing Now: ‘Looking in – Sculptures and Models’ by Katrín Sigurðardóttir

Published October 12, 2015

Katrín Sigurðardóttir is one of Iceland’s most successful and well-known contemporary artists. Her works often play on scale, shrinking down buildings, rooms or landscapes to trick the eye and befuddle the mind, and transplanting or splicing locations in unexpected ways. Katrín represented Iceland at the 55th Venice Biennale, and has shown at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Sculpture Centre and PS1 in her adopted hometown of New York City. For the remainder of 2015, a range of sculptures and maquettes made between 2004-2014 are on display at Hafnarhúsið, showing Katrín’s creative process from conception through to large-scale finished installation.

The exhibit is on display at the Reykjavík Art Museum: Hafnarhús until December 31. Admission is 1,400 ISK. See the full description on our listings site.
