Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir will introduce a few guiding principles and characteristics of her works as well as go through her practice to illustrate the ideology in chosen works and creating art as a whole.
These transformations already have a place in our world: „When a coin, one of the strongest metaphors for materialism, is cast into a well it suddently becomes a wish that is a kind of spiritual symbol.“
