Agnes Ársælsdóttir (b. 1996) works with radical affection in her works, exploring man’s relationship with its environment and other species. She graduated BA from Iceland University of the Arts in 2018 and later that year she started her internship with Gérald Kurdian in Paris. This summer, Agnes worked on radio sketches Samlíf (Cohabitation) for Channel 1 with Sylvía Dröfn Jónsdóttir. The project was sponsored by the Icelandic Design Fund.
