Elín Hansdóttir’s site-specific installations take many forms, including auditory or optical illusions, labyrinthian tunnels and motion-activated architectural elements. She creates self-contained worlds that seem to operate under their own set of rules, completely transforming a benign space into one that defies expectations and seems only to exist at a particular moment in time. She has created and installed work in a number of international venues including KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Frieze Projects London, ZKM Karlsruhe, Den Frie Copenhagen, the National Gallery of Iceland and Reykjavik Art Museum. Her show Elsewhere recently opened in Ásmundarsalur and is on view until October 6th.
In this lecture Elín will talk about processes and the source of ideas in the making of her work.
The lecture will be held in English and is open to all. Facebook event.
