Katrin Sigurdardottir


Icelandic artist Katrin Sigurdardottir‘s work creates imaginary spaces within another space. Sigurdardottir deals with scale to create a relationship between the work and the viewer. She uses architectural structures to bring together nature and design, allowing the viewer to participate with the work. Her most recent exhibition, open now with P.S.1 in New York, depicts an artificial landscape where the viewer must climb a ladder to view the created space. Currently, Sigurdardottir is seen as one of the most influential artists of Iceland. She received her MFA from Rutgers University and since has shown with Art Basel in Miami, the Renaissance Society in Chicago, Fonds Regional d’Art Contemporain de Bourgogne in France and Galleri i8 in Iceland. In 2005, she was one of the recipients of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant for the Arts.
