The exhibition Breath on a Window of works by Sigga Björg og Ásmundur Sveinsson will open in Ásmundarsafn on Museum Night, Friday, 3. February at 17h00.
Reykjavík Art Museum continues to present new works by contemporary artist in Ásmundarsafn, where they meet in dialogue with Ásmund Sveinsson's visual world. Now the focus is on legends, fairy tales and imagination.
Sigga Björg is known for her imaginative drawings, installations, videos and books. She has created a unique visual world where fantasy, humor and horror go hand in hand. In her works, she threads the emotional life in all its chaos and creates moods that are almost impossible to put into words, but with her characteristic style she manages to express the most incredible nuances. At this exhibition, she works, among other things, on a new series based on Icelandic folk tales. In Sigga Björg´s drawings she mixes splashes and randomness with fine precision and patterns. Her works are created equally on the walls of showrooms and on paper.
