Megan Auður

I snap. I freeze. Burn. Melt. I build barricades. And I build bridges.

Barricades is an exhibition by Megan Auður on experiences of PTSD and healing.

We often talk about recovery as a path forward. A road on which one stumbles, or is deterred. The exhibition Barricades claims that trauma and recovery exist simultaneously. Whether it is going well, or not. It’s okay, it’s all a part of it.

Megan Auður is an interdisciplinary artist and community organizer currently based in Iceland. Her works center on trauma and healing, through creating frameworks for dialogue, support and collective imaginations of possible futures.

Megan holds a BA in Fine Arts from HKU University of the Arts Utrecht (2020) and has since worked in various fields of art, including as an artist, teacher, activist, writer and curator. In her practice she has co-initiated various long-term collaborations – such as the initiative Tools for the Times (2019- ongoing), and the advocacy group AIVAG, Artists in Iceland Visa Action Group (2021-ongoing).

Megan Auður has previously worked with The Kuno Bienalle, Basis Voor Actuele Kunst, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Kunsthalle Wien, and the Impakt festival.
