Art in General is pleased to present a New Commissions installation in the storefront Project Space by Katrin Sigurdardottir.
Katrin Sigurdardóttir was born in Reykjavik and lives and works in New York City and Reykjavik. Sigurdardottir mines territories of landscape, architecture, space and memory, subverting our desire to name and locate how we experience places in general, and art objects in particular. The artist makes sculptures and interventions in various media and large walk in – and up and down and out – installations that invite movement and viewer participation. With an economy of means and a light touch, she engages in a playful dialogue about knowledge and observation, what it means to have our feet on and off the ground and, sometimes, our perceptions turned upside down. Solo exhibitions of her work have been mounted in museums such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and PS1 Contemporary Art Center, NY. She has received such awards as The Icelandic Department of Culture’s National Artist Fellowship in 2007, 2005, 2002, and 2000, The Louis Comfort Tiffany Biennial Award in 2005, and The Rema Hort Foundation Grant, New York, in 2005.
