Skerpla Ensemble interprets in music the sculptures of Guðlaug Mía Eyþórsdóttir, Variations.
Guðlaug Mía Eyþórsdóttir (b.1988) completed a BA degree from the Fine Art Department of Iceland University of the Arts in 2012 and later studied at the MA program in Fine Art at the Koninklijke Academie in Gent, Belgium, from which she graduated in 2018. Guðlaug has initiated a broad range of projects within the arts and has worn many hats as a publisher, curator and researcher. Between 2012-19 she initiated, along with fellow artists, the exhibition venues Kunschlager in Reykjavík and ABD Klubhuis in Antwerp, Belgium. In her practise Guðlaug concerns herself with the sculptural aspects of our surroundings, observes the forms, textures and acts they consist of and explores whether daily activities can be materialised.
