Ultimate, Relative

Ráðhildur Ingadóttir has long made work related to the infinite and perpetual. In this exhibition, she sketches fleeting views of her world with a video camera, drawing from her experience, depicting memories. We are given the sense of an individual looking upon a richness of experience, the past written in the present. The artist is in world – her world – where the mundane sits cheek-by-jowl with the significant.
