The exhibition “Teikn” (“Sign”) with works by Myriam Bat-Yosef and Jóhanna Kristbjörg Sigurðardóttir opens at the Living Art Museum in Reykjavík today.
Bat-Yosef’s work is to the left.
Bat-Yosef’s and Jóhanna’s works are brought together because of the similar thread that can be detected in their practice despite their age difference, as stated on the museum’s website.
Both artists use paintings, videos and performances to mediate the interrelations of what cannot be expressed with words.
Both of them have developed an artistic language that in form and color outline a strong symbolism with a religious, even supernatural appearance.
A central element in both their works is emphasis on unrestrained flow of ideas that can be traced back to symbolism and surrealism.
“Teikn” is sponsored by Hlaðvarpinn and the City of Reykjavík with support from the Icelandic Centre of Art.
The exhibition runs through March 11.
