Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir: Screening and poem

Welcome to Nýló for Good Thursday 24.02.2022

Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir will give a performance during her solo exhibition Conversation to the Self

No conversation can take place without some kind of presence. And no conversation can take place without will or risk, without stepping into unknown situations, new perspectives and ambiguous feelings. Conversation to the Self is a meeting place. A platform where video works, photographs and performances; moments from different times in Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir's career intertwine into a complex whole. Archetypes from the future appear in times of crisis, buried memories surface and vibrant stories break through darkness and crawl under the skin. The dreamy, almost surreal flash that characterises Ásdís' work takes over and invites us in.

Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir (b. 1976) lives and works in Reykjavík. She graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2000 and an MA from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2004 with a focus on video and performance arts. Since the beginning of her career, Ásdís Sif has exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in Iceland and internationally, including the Akureyri Art Museum, Hverfisgallerí, Reykjavík Art Museum, Centre Pompidou (Paris, France) and the Tate Gallery (London, UK).
