Sigurður Guðjónsson, Perpetual Motion 


Sigurður Guðjónsson (b.1975) creates powerful videos in which image, sound, and space coalesce to form an organic whole. Guðjónsson creates works whose rhythms enfold the viewer in a synesthetic experience, fusing the senses of sight and hearing in a way that seems to expand their field of perception and inducing yet unfelt sensations. Many of his works examine man-made constructions, machines, and the infrastructure of technical relics in conjunction with natural elements. Sigurður lives and works in Reykjavík.  

On the occasion of Guðjónsson’s contribution to the 59th Venice Biennale, the accompanying catalogue presents a cross-section of his growing oeuvre. The Pavilion of Iceland is curated by Mónica Bello who wrote an essay in the catalogue.
