Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson


The Death Show, 2014


Hotel Holt

Performance Dates
12. -19. April 2015


Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson  is a storyteller, a performer, a dancer, an object maker, an illustrator. He has a love for the absurd, by which is meant less an obsessive passion for the ridiculous, nonsensical or the odd, than a tender and caring attitude: he takes care of the absurd, he helps it to develop, he gives it a place alongside everything else where it can be your most disturbing neighbour and your best friend.  More often than not Styrmir uses the written language as a genesis of his work. Written pieces are then adapted into live performances that activate objects, things and gestures. The performances and their narrative, that often are delivered as monologues, serve as an exhibition device for autonomous art objects.
