The Identity Explored at Mosfellsbaer Gallery

The exhibition “Identity/Hidden Identity” by Hulda Vilhjálmsdóttir (b. 1971), is currently running at the Mosfellsbear Art Gallery, facilitated at the local library. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings and sculptures.


“Our identity is a large part of life, how we see ourselves and what we show others. Everyone is unique in their own way. We live together in society and we all influence each other and are formed throughout life,” the artist explains in a press release.

“When a person stands in front of you with a mask, he or she becomes unknown, the identity is hidden and a different perception takes over. The person not wearing a mask is afraid of the unknown. The masked person is free for a while.”

Vilhjálmsdóttir graduated from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2000 and has exhibited her works in Iceland and abroad. In 2009 she was shortlisted for the Carnegie Art Awards.

The exhibition runs until October 9. The gallery is open during the library’s opening hours. Admission is free.
