Sigurður Guðjónsson represents Iceland at Venice Biennale 2021

BERG Contemporary is pleased to announce that Sigurður Guðjónsson has been appointed as Iceland’s representative at the 59th Venice Bienniale, to be held in 2021.

The selection for the Venice Biennale 2021 was made by Icelandic Art Center’s professional committee and announced at the beginning of December.
Sigurður holds more than twenty solo exhibitions and dozens of group shows and festival screenings under his belt and was awarded the 2018 Icelandic Art Prize for his exhibition Inlight.

His newest work Enigma is currently scheduled for exhibitions at Kennedy Center DC, Adler Planetarium and Carnegie Hall, among other exhibition places in the upcoming months.

He exploits the potential of time-based media to produce pieces that rhythmically engage the viewer in a synaesthetic experience, linking vision and hearing in ways that seem to extend one’s perceptual field.
