KRISTINN GUÐBRANDUR HARÐARSON
Kristinn Guðbrandur Harðarson (b. 1955) has been selected as the biennial’s honorary artist, and has been active in the Icelandic art scene for decades. In his works a personal and poetic processing of the artist's close environment is positioned within various mediums including texts, embroidery, sculpture, wall mural, cartoons and performances. Kristinn’s solo exhibition will be presented at Ásmundarsalur, and an artist book introduced at the same time will serve as its own independent exhibition space.
