Þór Sigurþórsson

The exhibition features new works by Þór Sigurþórsson, drawing lines of intersection across time and space. In his practice, the artist has a habit of introducing everyday objects and materials into new contexts. This often includes found objects that bring to mind themes of time, repetition and cycles: items like tent pegs and clockhands that seem familiar but can appear strange when arranged in a new manner.

Þór Sigurþórsson graduated with an MFA degree in art from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2008. Previously, he graduated with a BA degree from the Iceland University of the Arts in 2002 and also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Iceland and abroad, such as at the Reykjavík Art Museum and as part of The Wheel, a series of exhibition on art in public space presented by the Reykjavík Association of Sculptors. He has also held a number of solo exhibitions, for example in Y Gallery, Hverfisgallerí and Harbinger. In 2015, Þór was awarded a grant from the foundation of Svavar Guðnason and Ásta Eiríksdóttir.
