Pars pro toto: Artist Talk
Anna Guðjónsdóttir talks about her exhibition Pars pro toto in Gallery A Hafnarhús.
Anna Guðjónsdóttir shows a new work in multiple parts that takes over the gallery space. Guðjónsdóttir‘s art is deeply rooted in painting, reflecting classic questions on the divide between two-dimensional, painted surface and three-dimensional, real space – the boundary between the original and the copy.
Guðjónsdóttir brings these questions about by way of landscape and architecture as well as referring to the shape of the exhibition vitrine. In her exhibition, Pars pro toto, the gallery becomes a vitrine of sorts, accessible by viewers. They are surrounded by paintings reflecting the space itself as well as opening up other unforeseen dimensions.
