Hope I Don't Burn It All Down

Heiðdís Hólm

Heiðdís Hólm (born 1991) is a visual artist who works in diverse media such as painting, drawing and performance. The starting point in her pictures is often personal experiences and memories that become raw material for the process, which swings between frivolous exaggeration, dark introspection and the creation of complete fiction. In this exhibition she searches for the humour in drama or the drama in humour and the imbalance found in this. The works reflect the diversity of the human condition, man‘s influence on nature and man‘s influence resulting from his influence on nature. 

Heiðdís Hólm graduated from the Fine Arts Department of Akureyri School of Visual Arts 2016 and has a PgDip in visual arts from Glasgow School of Art 2020. This is her first solo exhibition in a museum. She has held and participated in various solo- and group exhibitions and festivals in Iceland and Europe. She lives in Seyðisfjörður and works at the LungA School there.
