CROSS RESIDENCY - Reykjavík

Nína Óskarsdóttir

01.06 > 25.06.21

Clermont-Ferrand

Born in 1986, lives and works in Reykjavík, Iceland

 

Nína Óskarsdóttir's sculptures and installations express a deep connection to matter. Handmade and fairly

crude objects, containing the imprint of the artist's gesture, are arranged on simple and uncluttered

furniture. The act of making matters more than technical mastery and the artist constantly plays with the

limits of good and bad taste. She draws on popular culture and beliefs, and associates new technologies

with ancient knowledge and skills. Her installations resemble traces of domestic rituals, highlighting our

complex relationship to objects. The hand emerges as the active element, a bridge between materiality and

immateriality, between artisanal expertise and spirituality, by appealing to the figure of the witch.
