Örn Alexander Ámundason lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. He graduated with a BFA in 2009 from Malmö Art Academy. He has in the past years exhibited in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Austria, Germany and Iceland. His latest solo exhibition was in Brandenburgischer Kunstverein in Potsdam, Germany. In spring 2011 Ámundason will graduate with a Masters degree in Fine Arts from Malmö Art Academy.
A recurring factor in Ámundasons work is transposition. In previous works he has transposed a financial crisis into a symphony, chess games into clay, and arias from famous operas into plaster sculptures. In these pieces the struggle of ones own personal language vs. public language play a great deal. And although these works are in their nature doomed (since a sculpture can never really be a chess game) it has something to say about the idea of interpretation in general. And how we as people, no matter how hard we try, will never completely understand each other.
