On Friday the 23rd of March at 1PM an open lecture by Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir will be held at the Department of Fine Art, Laugarnesvegur 91.

This is the first lecture organised by 1st year MA students of Fine Art.

Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir presents a performative lecture in which she will reproduce and frame and archive some of her own performance works from 2008 to the present. Under the title, "Feeding the Vanity," part 2 the artist/lecturer will examine the aesthetics and challenges of working in performance as a medium and take the audience through the wide range of this expressive form.

Katrín I. Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir (b. 1982) lives in Reykjavik, Iceland. Her subjects often include the social and political landscape with focus on the art world phenomenon, which she funnels into her practice in unusual and personal ways. Through various methods and mediums, including writing, performance, drawing, and sculpture, she addresses, challenges, and becomes the subject of her artwork. She has presented solo projects and performances at the Living Art Museum, Reykjavík (2013); National Gallery of Iceland, Reykjavík (2012); and Reykjavík Art Museum, Reykjavík (2008). Katrín is the recipient of a MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York (2014); a BA degree in Art History and Art Theory from the University of Iceland (2012); and BA in Fine Art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts (2008).

The lecture will be held in english and is open to all.
