Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir


Margins/Mæri, 2014


11. – 19. April, 2015


Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir  studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts and received her BFA and MFA from California Institute of the Arts; she has also studied in Germany and Maine, U.S.A.

A founder of Kling & Bang Gallery, Hekla has curated several exhibitions and has lectured at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Magic is a leitmotif in Hekla’s work as she seeks to capture the “perfect moments” when wonderful things appear unexpectedly and in the most unlikely places. Her multimedia installations, such as her sound-reactive cold cathode light sculptures of fireworks or waterfalls in dialogue with audio and video, have been exhibited internationally to wide acclaim.
