Sigga Björg Sigurðardóttir & Mikael Lind Skinings

The new video installation Skinnings by Sigga Björg Sigurðardóttir and Mikael Lind was created specifically for the exhibition. The installation consists of 30 video pieces and 30 sound works created for 3 projectors and 6 speakers. Sigga Björg works with both figurative and abstract drawings on paper and also draws straight onto walls. She has made many video works using stop-motion technique, in which every frame of the animation is drawn by hand. The exhibition includes drawings from the process of making the video works, and those drawings could be seen as animations even if they are made with pencil, pen and watercolour on paper. The drawings were created layer by layer and recorded frame by frame, so the connection between the drawings and the video works is indissoluble. The sound world of the video installation is composed by the electronic musician Mikael Lind, who has worked together with Sigga Björg on a number of video projects in the past years. Mikael interprets the colours and movements of the subject with individual soundscapes characterized by diverse electronic music styles. The sound designs span everything from ambient music and musique concrete to pure techno. Mikael's sound world works effectively to open up and create space within the overall work. Sigga Björg’s works often bring together figurative line drawings, colourful and parallel worlds that indicate that there are more than five dimensions of perception, and provide insight into magic as well as our potential for weaving more complex patterns of reality than we experience in our own lives, thus tracing our way along unpredictable paths into the future.
