That’s a Very Large Number — A Commerzbau by Hildigunnur Birgisdóttir

That’s a Very Large Number — A Commerzbau

The Icelandic Art Center is pleased to share the title and further details of Hildigunnur Birgisdóttir’s presentation for the Icelandic Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2024. The Reykjavík-based artist will present That’s a Very Large Number — A Commerzbau by Hildigunnur Birgisdóttir, an exhibition of new sculpture and installation works, curated by American curator Dan Byers. That’s a Very Large Number —A Commerzbau will respond to the Icelandic Pavilion and the Biennale Arte 2024 itself, with an uncanny exhibition that playfully subverts expectations of beauty, value, and utility within the framework of a global art event.
