Recorder chosen for Loop Barcelona Critics’ Pick

Recorder (2010) by Sigurður Guðjónsson was recently chosen as one of blinkvideo’s Critics’ Pick of Loop Barcelona 2018. The critics Nicole Büsing and Heiko Klaas included Recorder in their selection of the highlights of the art fair which took place in November of last year.

„The video work “Recorder”, created in 2010 by the Icelandic artist Sigurður Guðjónsson, was shown at BERG Contemporary from Reykjavik and also attracted a considerable number of viewers. In the loop one sees an old cine projector with two reels spinning incessantly above a water basin in an old warehouse. The insistent sound of drops falling into water and the mechanical sound of rotating film reels merge to form a musical flow that corresponds to both the visual aesthetics and sombre mood of the images. Sigurður Guðjónsson, born in 1975, is not only known in the experimental art scene, but has also presented his works in an international context in many exhibitions and at festivals.“
