The exhibition “Neverland” by Katrín Elvarsdóttir—the 16th exhibition in Reykjavík Art Museum’s D-Gallery project—opened in Hafnarhús on Thursday. Elvarsdóttir likes to merge fiction and reality in her artwork.
“In recent years Katrín Elvarsdóttir has drawn her viewers into a world where fiction and reality are confluent. She uses the photograph as a means to create an imaginary world that springs from reality itself, thus bringing out an alien quality in surroundings normally seen as commonplace,” a press release says in description of the exhibition.
Elvarsdóttir graduated from the Art Institute in Boston in 1993 and has since exhibited her work widely in the US and Europe. Her current exhibition at Hafnarhús is curated by Yean Fee Quay. On March 7, the artist will discuss her work at Hafnarhús.
