Artist Talk: After the Blizzard
Event location: 

Artist Unndór Egill Jónsson will give a gallery talk about the exhibition After the Blizzard at Ásmundarsafn on Sunday, 25 September at 14h00.

In Icelandic. Registration HERE

Unndór Egill Jónsson exhibits his work in a conversation with the work of Ásmundur Sveinsson. Sculptors from different periods meet in dialogue that offers a new insight into Ásmundur’s heritage and introduces new works by a contemporary artist to the viewers. The museum has been working with Ásmund's legacy in this way for some time now.

Unndór Egill Jónsson (1978) graduated with a bachelor's degree from the art department of the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2008 and completed an MFA from the Valand School of Art in Gothenburg in 2011. In recent years, he has exhibited both in Iceland and abroad, including a group exhibition Momentum Design in Moss in Norway in 2010, Riki, flora, fána, fabula in the Reykjavík Art Museum in 2016, in the Estonian Museum of Contemporary Art in Tallinn, Estonia in 2018 and in Abrakadabra in the Reykjavík Art Museum in 2021. In 2020, Unndór held the solo exhibition Cul de Sac in Kling and Bang in the Marshall House.
