About Hrefna Lind
2011 BA, Literature and Art Pedagogy, University of Iceland
2014 MFA, Theatre Contemporary Performance, Naropa University, Boulder Colorado
2017 MFA, Performing Arts, Art Academy of Iceland
Based in Iceland, performance artist Hrefna Lind Lárusdóttir works across disciplines, including physical theatre, performance, dance, video installations, music, and written texts. Her performances tend to bring the audience to the borders of reality and fantasy, where she reconstructs everyday life to meet the audience in a space of the unknown.
Her newest piece, My House, is based in artistic research about how Social Media and reality merges together into a performance space. The piece is grounded in her own reality and the struggle to survive in the housing market in Reykjavík today.
She situates her work in-between autobiographical performance, relational art and happenings. In her practise she writes songs that can be described as off-beat, glittery storytelling about domestic ordinary things.
