Margrét Helga Sesseljudóttir (b. 1988) completed her BA Fine Arts from Iceland University of the Arts (IUA) in 2010 and a Masters Degree from IUA, in 2019.   

“I make site specific sculptures and installations. Proportions and scale are an important aspect of my work. I make sculptures that are made for the human body; they are human sized. They often resemble an empty stage, where something might have happened, but everyone has left, and nobody remembers what took place. I want to create an atmosphere of eerie emptiness and sensual divinity.

My apartment is humid and warm. The washing machine is turned on and the wet towels on the radiator are smelly. The floor, walls and ceiling are empty; the apartment is a void. The morning daylight shines through the curtainless windows. Porcelain figurines stand in the windowsills and everything is very bright and quiet. The fake wooden floor is lumpy and oily and there is a white fluid leaking out of it. Scopaesthesia is a supposed phenomenon in which humans detect being stared at by extrasensory means.” (MHS)
