Grotta Zine — First off, sorry for the lack of posting lately...

First off, sorry for the lack of posting lately but we decided to take a little break after the hectic Sequences Festival. We are now back in business with a lot of new and exciting content that we will share with you in the coming days :)

And now… Artist of the week, Iceland’s representative at the Venice Biennale 2013, Katrín Sigurðardóttir.


In her work, Katrin Sigurdardottir examines distance and memory and their embodiments in architecture, urbanism, 

cartography and traditional landscape representations. Sometimes there is a mnemonic aspect to the work, i.e. making 

the work is a process of spatial recall. The places created are frequently based on real places, points of departure, arrival 

or passage, places as minute at their spatial and temporal distance as the models she make of them. While alluding to real

locations, her works question the verity of these places, as well as our account of them.

Sigurdardottir´s work crosses the boundary between perceptual and embodied space. She takes on the uneasy confrontation, when the viewer has to negotiate a new relationship with the miniature, see it as not representing other than itself, 

a disproportionate constructed object in the full-scale world.
