Transits - Reykjavík Art Museum

Sigurður Guðjónsson presents Transits, an exhibition that unveils the expressive and evocative dimension of the artist’s work. Transits explores the movements, fluxes and discrete drifts occurring in the material world. The selection making up the exhibition comprises both recent work and one new production. As a unified composition, all the works are rooted in the artist’s exploration of micro-landscapes and video imaging where the visible, the audible and the spatial form an unbroken whole. Guðjónsson is devoted to capturing the rhythms and signals contained in a surface or object, particularly when related to industrial devices or materials. The almost imperceptible transitions within the works are careful formed to reveal the rhythms, and the pulses. Transits invites us to think about the production of images, the complex insights into material, and the state of perpetual transformation of the world.

Curated by Pascale Cassagnau


Sigurður earned the award for his 2017 exhibition Inlight, which was on show in the chapel and morgue of the former St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hafnarfjörður. The award committee said that the exhibition is a visual experience in which the viewer becomes conscious of his/her own existence and body. The works Fuser 2017, Scanner 2017, and Mirror Projector 2017 [which made up Inlight] are mysterious and powerful at the same time, and trigger subtle sensations that are, nonetheless, full of allusions to mechanical activity.”

Comprising photographic and video works, the exhibition explores landscape as a place of complication, rather than revelation, and investigates channels into new ways of seeing.

The exhibition includes works by artists Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Ole Brodersen, Sigurður Guðjónsson, Simen Johan, Susanna Majuri, and Pentti Sammallahti.

Another North: Landscape Reimagined is organized and presented by the American-Scandinavian Foundation.

Frankfurter Kunstverein, Sigurdur Gudjónsson: Video Screening

The Icelandic artist Sigurdur Gudjonsson (*1975 in Reykjavík, Iceland) works mainly with video and photography. He studied at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, an influence that also appears in his works which link the mythic landscapes of his homeland Iceland with the dark atmosphere of Viennese Actionism. Sigurdur Gudjonsson’s films are captivating in their unsettled ambiguity and eeriness. While his films avoid a linear narrative structure, sound, image, and editing are used as compositional means. The conjunction of concrete elements and grotesque images produces a interaction that evokes in the viewer a feeling of alienation, meaninglessness, and absurdity, and also generates a powerful physical and emotional depth.

Screeningprogram:“Insight” (2011), “Bleak” (2006), “Glasshouse” (2010), “Sleep” (2010) among others.
