Dwarf Gallery exhibits “Leisure, Administration and Control”

The exhibition “Midbaugur Kringla – Leisure, Administration and Control” by Anna Lind Saevarsdóttir and Linda Rogn opened in Gallery Dwarf in Reykjavík yesterday as part of a larger co-Nordic project.

Eleven artists from five Nordic countries participate in the project, which is supported by KUNO, a Nordic-Baltic network promoting higher art education. The group has earlier worked together on the exhibition “Hard Revolution” in Berlin in 2006.

Saevarsdóttir (born 1982) is an Icelandic artist who lives in Reykjavík. She mostly works with video installations, featuring borderline cultures and the darker sides of the community. The artist is often inspired by poetry and has self-published two poetry books. Saevarsdóttir graduated from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2006.

Rogn (born 1982) is a Norwegian artist who lives in Bergen. Video installations are also her medium of choice. Rogn is inspired by the clash of new and old, the realistic and unrealistic. The spectator participates in her work by setting off sensors to start her videos. Rogn has a Masters degree in fine arts from Bergen National Academy of the Arts.

The exhibition is open Tuesday to Sunday until August 4.
