Björk Viggósdóttir


Björk Viggósdóttir graduated from the Art Academy of Iceland in 2006 and has since produced a number of videos and installations. Prior to working in the visual arts, she was as a keybordist, bassist and singer for the band Lúna. In her general practice Björk deals with visual images, emotions, sounds and sensations in a similar way to what occurs involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of live, whether in dream or at wake. Björk works with colors, emotions, signs and other things from the everyday, which she brings to other dimensions by creating for them new perspectives and settings. In her art Björk likes to encourage her audience to use all their senses for viewing her work by using combinations of different media in her works. She has exhibited her work across Europe, the United States and in Iceland where she frequently collaborates with musicians, dancers and other artists in both solo and group exhibitions. Recently she has collaborated with choreographers/dancers Sigríður Soffía and Snædís Lilja in several projects.
