Brák Jónsdóttir


Brák Jónsdóttir (b. 1996) is an Icelandic visual artist. She earned her BA degree in visual art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2021. Her work explores themes from prehistory to imagined futures, narrating fictional events that breathe life into extinct creatures and otherworldly beings. Bridging gaps of knowledge with imaginative mythologies, she creates totemic installations rooted in sculpture, delving into the tension between the artificial and the natural. Brák’s works evoke tenderness, humour, and diverse worlds, where sensuous hypotheses emerge from factual extrapolations. Crafting enigmatic narratives through bizarre ecosystems, she ignites existential questions, inviting audiences to ponder the mysteries of life’s ways.
