Sigurdur Gudjonsson

Sigurdur Gudjonsson is a visual artist from Iceland, working primarily with video and photography for his installations. He studied at the Iceland Academy of the Arts and the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna, and this seems to have had an effect on his imagery, which mixes the mythical landscape of his native land with the dark atmosphere of Viennese aktionism. The video narratives of Sigurdur Gudjonsson refuse linearity and work with superimposing cuts in which sound, mostly taken while filming, becomes also an important element for his broken narratives. He plays with the games of light on the Icelandic landscape and the violence of the weather. Sigurdur Gudjonsson lives and works in Reykjavic.
