Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir is a visual artist from Iceland who stayed with us in March 2017. She born in 1982 in Iceland. She has MFA degree in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in New York (2014) and she is a Fulbright Grantee (2012). Katrin also has BA in Art Theory from the University of Iceland (2012) and she was awarded the Dungal Art Fund award (2012).
Katrín’s subjects often include the social and political landscape and ecology of the art environment, which she funnels into her practice in unusual and personal ways, through various methods and mediums, such as writing, performance, drawing, sculpture making among other forms.
She started her project ”Land Occupied love – Love Occupied Land” 1,5 year ago. During her stay in the Creative Centre she continued the project, which is in constant progress. Katrín made video installation inspired by the surrounding landscape and her inner emotions. You can find more detail about her artwork and video installation in the interview below!
