Sigurður Guðjónsson (b. 1975) studied in Copenhagen, Reykjavík and Vienna. He started his exhibition career at the turn of the century on the vibrant artist-run experimental scene in Reykjavík that has fostered new art in temporary venues all over the old city. His dark and hypnotically moody videos immediately set him apart and attracted attention not only in Iceland but also in Berlin, New York, London, Beijing, Seoul, and wherever they were exhibited. With more than twenty solo exhibitions and dozens of groups shows and festival screenings, his works have found appreciative audiences around the world.
Sigurður Guðjónsson was awarded the 2018 Icelandic Art Prize as Visual Artist of the Year. In 2019 Sigurður was announced as Iceland’s representative at the Venice Biennale in 2022.
