Biting an apple, experiencing isolation, developent of superorganisms and seismosensory systems in fish from Lake Baikal… These are just some of the elements that intersect with Gerður Helgadóttir’s practice to produce the variety of works seen in this show.
Gerðarsafn invited MA students from the Iceland University of the Arts and the University of Iceland to explore and respond to the collection. The students gained insight into Gerður's multifaceted practice, researching various aspects of her life and artistic career. Her subjects, materials, and techniques, as well as the institution that holds her work, served as inspiration for the artists’ own artworks.
The exhibition opens on 20th of May and will be open until 30th of May.
