SIGURÐUR GUÐJÓNSSON WINS ICELANDIC ART PRIZE

BERG Contemporary is pleased to announce the win of SIGURÐUR GUÐJÓNSSON at the Icelandic Art Prize, as Visual Artist of the Year.

Sigurður earned the award for his 2017 exhibition Inlight, which was on show in the chapel and morgue of the former St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hafnarfjörður. The award committee said that “[t]he exhibition is a visual experience in which the viewer becomes conscious of his/her own existence and body. The works Fuser 2017, Scanner 2017, and Mirror Projector 2017 [which made up Inlight] are mysterious and powerful at the same time, and trigger subtle sensations that are, nonetheless, full of allusions to mechanical activity.”
