Gallery Gudmundsdottir: A New Space for Icelandic Art in Berlin

Currently, on show at Gallery Gudmundsdottir is Landscape Enclosed by Anna Marie Sigmond Gudmundsdottir until the 24th of April. Icelandic-Norwegian artist Anna Marie Sigmond Gudmundsdottir is renowned in both Iceland and Norway for her multimedia drawings, paintings, installations, and public murals. This exhibition showcases her characteristic attention to disciplined line work: each line in her large-scale pieces is meticulously painted freehand. In doing so, the artist reflects on the multifaceted impact of line making—or delineating—in visual, metaphorical, and conceptual terms.

Coming up next, on April 29th 2022, Anna Rún Tryggvadóttir will exhibit a large-scale sculptural performance. Her work springs out of a material-based research that reflects upon anthropocentrism, through non-human performances. She works with staging critical moments of material entities, through slow paced kinetic installations, often drawing into light, breathtaking moments of life and decay.

In June, there will be an exhibition with Kolbeinn Hugi who is working with a very interesting concept called The Animal Internet. It’s, in a way, a post-internet, futuristic work which gives us an alternative view into a zoo-cratic future, where all animals have been given a way to log into the internet.
