Special Installation on Display at Gallery Ágúst

Icelandic visual artist Ingunn Fjóla Ingthórsdóttir opened her solo exhibition in Gallery Ágúst in Reykjavík yesterday, presenting the installation “Painting Site” where the viewer can experience the spatial work of art from within.

“Painting Site” was first exhibited at Cuxhavener Kunstverein in Germany in 2008 and is now on view for the first time in Iceland, as stated in a press release.

The installation is made of painted chipboards mounted together in an upright position so they make small groups of partition walls that one can walk between and each plate seems to make an individual painting.

The artist graduated from the Icelandic Academy of the Arts in 2007 but had previously graduated with a BA degree in Art History from Arhus University in Denmark.

Her most recent private exhibition was in Hafnarborg, the Hafnarfjördur Center of Culture and Fine Art, where she exhibited her installation “Prism” earlier this year. Ingthórsdóttir works with a variety of media but painting is often a focus point in her work.

The exhibition runs until June 24.
