Sóley Eiríksdóttir: Amuse – Exhibition Talk

Sunday January 22nd at 2 p.m., we invite you to an exhibition talk of Amuse, featuring works by Sóley Eiríksdóttir (1957-1994): sculptures, ceramics and two-dimensional works. The exhibition spans Sóley’s short but dynamic career, but last year Hafnarborg received a generous donation of sculptures by the artist, prompting a closer look at these works. To that end, Aðalheiður Valgeirsdóttir, co-curator of the exhibition, and Kristín Ísleifsdóttir, ceramic artist and product designer, will lead guests on a walkthrough of the exhibition, seeking to shed light on the artist’s life and career.

Sóley Eiríksdóttir studied metalworking at the Technical College of Hafnarfjörður for a year after finishing her studies at the Flensborg Secondary School. In 1975, she then enrolled in the Icelandic College of Arts and Crafts, first at the Department of Teaching before ultimately graduating from the Department of Pottery in 1981. Sóley exhibited widely in her short career, for example at the Reykjavík Art Museum, Hafnarborg, Gallerí Langbrók and the ASÍ Art Museum, as well as abroad, in the United States, Finland, Luxembourg, Canada and Germany.

Free entry – everyone welcome.
