Sirra Sigrún Gallerí Undirgöng

Sirra Sigrún´s exhibition WE ARE HERE includes a series of new works that refer to place or location, cosmic phenomena and relations between nation states. In Relationships between two states Sirra works with a graph that shows the different states of rivalry or peace between nations or states in the world from 1900 to 2023. The relationships are classified into five categories: Severe rivalry, lesser rivalry, negative peace, warm peace and security community. Sirra’s work is cosmic in nature, often connected to speculations about our position within the inner workings of nature, physics and the forces that drive the world. It often evokes our status as individuals, our value and smallness where the small is placed in context with the larger and the meaning is transferred from one phenomenon to another so that it becomes a new perception. Sirra Sigrún Sigurðardóttir (1977) completed her BA degree from the Iceland University of the Arts in 2001 and an MA degree from the School of Visual Art in New York in 2013.She has held solo exhibitions at the Reykjavík Art Museum, the Living Art Museum, the Árnes Art Museum, Hafnarborg and Kling & Bang. She has also taken part in numerous group exhibitions around the world, including China, Finland and England. Sirra has received grants and recognition from the art funds of Svavar Guðnason, Guðmunda Andrésdóttir and the Guðmunda S. Kristinsdóttir Prize. Sirra has been a member of the artist-run space Kling & Bang since its inception in 2003 and is Associate Professor of Fine Art and BA Program Director at The Iceland University of the Arts.
