For the occasion of her solo exhibition Sirra has created new works that explore the interplay between our felt experience and our understanding of facts and realities, as well as science‘s methods of visually communicating them to us, which is a familiar subject matter for Sirra. Her works position us and put us, humans on earth, in context with the universe and pre-history. The facts may not be new, but she brings them closer to us and renders them tangible. Sirra utilises data and methods of great scientists and thinkers, but after a twirl in the artist‘s test tubes a new and broader point of view often emerges, with more confluences and a more multifaceted understanding.
Sirra Sigrún Sigurðardóttir (b. 1977) completed her BA degree from the Icelandic Academy of Art in 2001 and an MA degree from the School of Visual Art in New York in 2013. Sirra’s work is cosmic in nature, often connected to speculations about our position within the inner workings of nature, physics and the forces that drive the world. She has held solo exhibitions at the Reykjavík Art Museum, the Living Art Museum, the Árnes Art Museum, Hafnarborg and Kling & Bang. She has also taken part in numerous group exhibitions around the world, including China, Finland and England. Sirra has received grants and recognition from the art funds of Svavar Guðnason, Guðmunda Andrésdóttir and the Guðmunda S. Kristinsdóttir Prize. Sirra has been a member of the artist-run space Kling & Bang since its inception in 2003 and is Associate Professor of Fine Art and BA Programme Director at The Iceland University of the Arts.
The exhibition runs through the 7th of April. Kling & Bang is open Wed-Sun from 12pm to 6pm. All are welcome and admission is free.
