The exhibition “Digital Sketchbook – Supersymmetry & Architecture” by Sissú is currently running at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography. It refers to the role of the digital camera in the artist’s continuous development of ideas.
The camera serves as a sketchbook and at the same time as a form of documentation on timeless flow, as a press release from the museum describes. Most of the pictures were taken between 2003 and 2008.
“Photography has always been an important part of visual art and in my work, kind of like an instrument that you never put down,” Sissú explains. “It is the technological eye which registers the truth as it appears in any given moment. […] It is part of our reality like the cell phone and the computer.”
Sissú began her artistic career with oil painting in the beginning of the 1970s and has held a number of solo exhibitions in Reykjavík and participated in group exhibitions aboard. Her exhibition in the Reykjavík Museum of Photography runs until December 2.
